For SME’s, the Annual Board Calendar is an effective tool to assist directors/management to identify and efficiently deal with key structured issues in an orderly fashion over the course of a year to assist in the evolution of thought and analysis.

Unfortunately, many directors deal with decision making on the RUN without proper planning and due consideration.

The Board Calendar is tailored to deal with structural matters i.e. the bigger picture, rather than with the day to day operational matters and avoids repetitive discussion.

Planned well ahead, it allows these key issues to be dealt with over the course of the year rather than spasmodically; it also allows directors/management to properly prepare and review the agenda items in advance.

The agenda of the Board Calendar needs to be designed appropriately for each business, but consist of some of the following:

  1. Strategic Planning
  2. Budgeting and Benchmarking Performance KPI’s
  3. Risk Management
  4. Labour Costs and Productivity
  5. Systems Review
  6. Tax Planning
  7. SWOT Analysis
  8. Sales and Marketing Plan
  9. Business Plan
  10. Finance Requirements
