policy development

Policy

Management Committees need to develop organisational policies in order to implement the strategic aims and priorities of the organisation.

Policies provide guidance so that each time a question arises about how to implement a broad decision, there are some parameters to inform the response. Policy guidelines articulate how an organisation's overall mission and aspirations are to be pursued.

Operating Environment

The operating environment for organisations is continually changing.  This change may be in government policy or in social trends, it may be legislative.  The Management Committee has a key role to play in ensuring that an organisation is aware of the environment.  This can be done through being well linked in with other organisations and individuals and ensuring that committee members are keeping up to date with trends and changes in the environment.
