Social Impact – 2019
Tipping the Scales: weighing up good governance against a need for innovation
It perhaps goes without saying that for charitable organisations, the modern world is one of multitudinous challenges. In an environment of funding cuts, greater public scrutiny and political instability, charities are having to think more creatively and prove more resilient than ever before. In organisations that often have deep rooted historical values, finding innovative pathways forward can be challenging. It also brings with it great opportunities, however: chances to redress strategy, develop offerings and streamline services.
Through this edition of CANVAS, we explore the often-complex balancing act that leaders must master in order to ensure their organisations’ relevance in a modern world whilst staying true to the core values. While innovation seems to be the order of the day, it is more important than ever that this is underpinned by a commitment to good governance.
