**Second in a series relating to a recent “experiment” in succession planningOn a boat, it’s critical to know who’s in charge of the vessel and the crew. A clear line of command determines who makes the final call on a multitude of decisions at sea. People’s lives depend on it.

A different type of inspiration came my way today.I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend a Vantage Point workshop about ‘Board Basics’.
Returning to Vantage Point after my recent “secondment” to the political arena, I expected to slide right back into business as usual. I thought I would pick up exactly where I left off.

Did you know we’re writing a book? Tomorrow I share the first draft of chapter one (titled: What is a People Lens?) and two (titled: Why does it Matter?) with 20 people from Vantage Point’s external talent team. I’ve spent a year preparing for this moment – and feel both nervous and excited.
In a world where everything is changing rapidly, the old rules no longer apply.  The structures, strategies and processes that once created successful organizations are not sustainable today. You’ve heard the refrain – funding is disappearing, we don’t have enough money, there aren’t enough volunteers. We know things aren’t working. And yet, we remain attached to the status quo and traditional ways of doing things. Change is difficult and uncomfortable – and we resist it.
