Solution and Demo

    The software application behind Board Checkup is available on a 30-day free trial and paid annual subscription of $400.00 USD to assess and benchmark changes in board performance and impact over time. It was designed based on a specific theory of change that empirical research shows resolves problems of board performance while protecting the personal identities of the people involved.    

    When you take the sample diagnostic questionnaire that follows, try to think of it in the same way you think of the one you get at a doctor’s office when you go for a checkup. You’ll recall that it contains a long list of possible health issues and asks you to check those that concern you so you and the doctor can discuss them. In the same way, this questionnaire provides the beginning of a health checkup for your board. The items included in it are issues raised by actual board members in many kinds of nonprofit organizations over the years. They are framed as statements of problems, and you are asked to indicate to what extent problems like these exist in your organization. The fewer items you agree with, the “healthier” you consider your board to be. When you do agree with one of the statements, you are not being critical of your board (just as checking “Do you get headaches?” on the doctor’s questionnaire does not mean you are somehow at fault). It merely indicates that this is a matter you think should be discussed.

    Please Note:

    Participating boards will have access to a unique dashboard of results, reports, and a procedure to process them with the board. Access to reports and a synthesis of the findings and interpretation are provided along with benchmarking of performance and comparison with other boards over time.
