The National Board Basics Curriculum Project: A Leadership Capacity Building Tool for Boards
Barnes, James; Lachapelle, Paul
Journal of Extension, v49 n3 Article 3TOT4 Jun 2011
We explain in this article the need for board training in rural America irrespective of industry or government sector. We discuss how an assessment of training needs has led to the launch of a new project called the National Board Basics Curriculum (NBBC) project. In this project, we have identified four key core competencies that every board needs collectively to be a high-performance system. We provide preliminary results of our findings as a tool Extension educators can use with boards in rural communities. Extension educators can use these existing resources and many more developed through the NBBC project. (Contains 1 table.)
