Why you can no longer ignore how your board is run
Humans possess a ‘planning fallacy’ which means we have the tendency to underestimate how much time will be needed to complete tasks. The key here is to plan for life to be unpredictable. The Trustee Meeting Framework has long-term strategy built into it, so that you can help your board meet the important challenge of planning for the scheme’s future.
The Trustee Toolkit provides a behaviourally-designed framework for running trustee meetings, and crucially, how to plan for the time between meetings. By addressing the spaces between meetings, we can make the meetings themselves as effective as possible.
Each step of the agenda has been designed using a combination of behavioural research, and canvassing the opinions of over 120 trustees in what they feel to be the most important items to cover in the increasingly short time that trustees have to execute. We also tested on 300 members of the general public so that we could see how trustees were different in how they made decisions. Full details can be found in the report.
