The blurred line: how to navigate the strategic vs the operational

This session is part of Getting on Board’s Trustee Learning Programme, providing free and high-quality training to support people to become and serve as effective trustees.

The most common complaint we hear at Getting on Board is charity managers talking about their trustees being over-involved in the detail.

The second most common complaint we hear from charity managers is trustees not being involved enough…

So how on earth do trustees work out where the line is?

How can they stay on top of the charity’s work without meddling? And at what point do they need to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in?

What do we need in place to know who is doing what, and how do we keep the lines of communication open so that we know when we should be more or less involved?

And for trustees of charities with no staff, you’re wearing both hats (operational and strategic) so how on earth do you manage both?

Come along to hear our panel debate these issues and more.
