Outstanding Board Leadership
The central focus or ‘reason for being’ of Board of Governance members is to maintain the relevance and usefulness of NIODA education (through academic programs, research and scholarship and consultancy) to organisations and the people who work in them. These are the primary stakeholders of the Institute.
The role of the Board of Governance is to be accountable for how the organisation works to successfully achieve this purpose within legal, ethical and prudent bounds. The Board is where all authority lies until some is delegated to others.
The Board is responsible for developing governance policy.
The Board defines, in writing, its expectations and intentions with regard to delivery, intended recipients, and intended impact on the outside world.
The Board is also responsible for the appointment of the CEO, for providing appropriate support to the CEO and for monitoring his/her performance.
