In the September/October 2012 edition of Illinois Parks & Recreation, ESC Engagement Manager RJ Young provides an outline effective Board Development in the article Diagnostic Tools for Highly Effective Boards.
Young defines the phases of a comprehensive Board Development project: diagnostics to understand how a board is performing, utilizing this information to create a detailed action plan for strengthening the board, and - the most critical - implementation that ensure all of the hard work creates results.
"Park District commissioners who are constantly focused on improving themselves and their board's effectiveness have learned that [Board Development] is a good investment of both their time and effort," writes Young.
