Welcome to the
Board Self-Assessment Tool (BSAT)
An easy to use self-assessment tool
The OODP Board Self-Assessment Tool has been developed to support and improve governance practice for the AIDS service organization (ASO) sector in Ontario. The objective of this resource is to provide an easy to use, practical process and tool that can be used by the Board to conduct a self-assessment and identify improvements to strengthen the Board and the overall functioning of the organization.
Once the Tool has been completed, the results can offer an impression of the overall effectiveness of the Board and provide an opportunity for the Board and Executive Director to step back and reflect on how well the Board is functioning. Importantly, the results should be used to encourage dialogue – refresh the Board’s understanding of its role and responsibilities, stimulate questions that need to be asked, identify areas of practice that may need attention, and draw out suggestions for improvement.
The survey is designed to be an easy to use self-assessment tool at a “group performance” level to generate discussion. The Tool is highly adaptable and ASO’s should feel free to make changes to it for their own use.
