Course Overview

Effective reports ensure that your board and committees enter into informed discussions on key issues with clarity on the root causes of problems, and a shared understanding of the pros and cons of the various options being put forward as potential solutions. This enables your board and committees to make the most effective use of time, which is essential given the unprecedented challenges facing providers today.

However to quote Blaise Pascal, the 17th century French mathematician and scientist, what we frequently see are long rambling papers because report writers lack the time to prepare succinct papers.

This practical workshop explores how you can improve the quality of your reports and the ultimate discussion and decision making that occurs.
