Has your Board stalled?
Does it feel like there is all talk and little (or no) action? Is every meeting feeling a little like Groundhog Day?
Alfred North Whitehead was an English mathematician and philosopher. He is best known as shaping a wide variety of disciplines including theology, education, physics, biology, economics, and psychology, among other areas.
He said “Ideas won’t keep. Something must be done about them”. Whilst this was said over 70 years ago, the meaning continues to live on. If we don’t act, then an idea, thought, or conversation will remain that. Until we act, will we take a step towards making that idea a reality.
Boardtrac turning ideas to reality
Boardtrac has realised Task Management to assist with moving the discussions within a Board, Governance Group or Project Management meeting from talking to action.
This new addition will help take the Board, Governance Group or Project Management team from “talking” to “doing”.
You can now create, assign and track tasks through Task Management. This will ensure tasks continue to move forward rather than stand still or disappearing off the radar.
Its simple yet effective design allows End Users / Board Members and Administrators to monitor the live tasks, their progression, and allow for discussion at the next meeting. Once a task is achieved, it will be removed from End User’s / Board Member’s view, but stored for best governance practice for Administrators to access in case it is required to be revisited.
Complementing other functionality
The Task Management function complements Create Boardpack PDF and Director audit status – a tool which provides visibility on who has not opened their agenda documents. Boardtrac’s Australian IT Developers continue to work on enhancing the capabilities of Boardtrac Plus to improve user experience – both at the Administrator level and the End User / Board Member level.
Boardtrac Plus is a secure, affordable Board portal built to comply with Australian governance requirements. It has been designed by Australian Directors, for Australian Companies. Boardtrac only provides functionality that you need and your End Users / Board Members will actually use – it’s one of the areas that set up apart from other providers. And because of this, we tend to be more affordable than the larger providers.
