I've recently been asked to assume a role that requires deep immersion in bylaws and policy manuals.
You know, exciting stuff.
And yet, they really are because bylaws and policy manuals can, in so many ways, determine whether an organization succeeds.
Ignore them and the factions run wild. Ignore them and in a short amount of time they will have conflicting provisions. Ignore the bigger picture and you'll soon have a board involved in staff activities and a staff stomping on board territory. The results are chaos, ineffectiveness, and the loss of accountability.
So the work will be fun.
On a step-by-step basis.
