Description This Portal covers the specific functions that provide direction and focus for all aspects of Outward Bound operations. Covering Governance, Leadership and Management it deals with the concepts that help us maintain direction and make the best use of our resources as we pursue our Mission.
The effectiveness of every center depends upon having a Governing Board of dynamic and capable individuals with a deep understanding of Outward Bound, who have influence with key sectors of the community and who provide a diversity of skills and ideas. It depends upon senior management who are dedicated, highly competent, and able to take the long view of where their Center is going and inspire others to work together to get there. It depends on staff who can take direction while still using their own initiative to take action that they know will help achieve clearly defined objectives. It depends on all of the above being able to work effectively together as members of a team. And it depends upon well developed and understood Policies and Procedures that allow everyone to work together based on a long range Strategic Plan and a related Annual Work Plan.
