img-cover-puppetwarp-2022-benchmarks-for-boardsHow does your board measure success?

Boards that are exemplary for their adherence to best gover-
nance practices have certain identifiable traits. But this is no
accident—they have taken steps to elevate their practices
and maintain them at the highest level.

These high-performing boards often exhibit:

  • Full board involvement and sense of engagement and participation.

  • Recognition of the difference between strategic focus and management overreach.

This paper attempts to serve as a guide for trustees and
boards that aspire to excel, with particular emphasis on the
board’s fiduciary role. We identify the practices and policies
of high performing boards and the steps that nonprofits may
want to consider if they seek to move to a higher level.
