Board development programme: Effective challenge, Manchester
Date: 04 February 2020
Venue: thestudio, 51 Lever St, Manchester M1 1FN
Effective challenge an essential element of a high performing organisation, both at the board and throughout your trust.
The absence of effective challenge has often been found to be a contributory factor in high profile NHS governance failures. Alongside this, the introduction of new and diverse system working whilst maintaining the current organisational accountabilities exposes organisations to increased risk. The ability to have courageous conversations outside of organisational boundaries will be essential.
