If you bring all of these factors together: good, strong preparation; a well-developed retreat with a definitive action plan; and thorough follow-up to that process, I think you will find that your board retreat will add immense value to your organization.
Maximizing the Value of Your Board Retreat
Board retreats can be transformational for organizations. However sometimes we put too much emphasis or hope in a single day or two-day retreat. In this Hospice Governance Academy learning module, Bill Musick, president of Integriti3D, shares his insights on what makes an effective hospice board retreat, including a list of planning logistics:
- Determine primary and secondary goals
- Decide who will participate and when
- Commit to when and where the retreat will be held
- Outline the advance preparation that will be helpful, and how much time is needed to complete it
- Start planning early
