Introduction

The FairShares Association’s governance auditing and diagnostic tools were strongly influenced by longitudinal studies and academic articles written at Sheffield Hallam University.

Key works include:

  • Ridley-Duff, R. J. (2005) Communitarian Perspectives on Corporate Governance, Sheffield: Sheffield Hallam University. [1]
  • Ridley-Duff, R. J. (2007) “Communitarian Perspectives on Social Enterprise”, Corporate Governance: an International Review, 15(2): 382-392. [2]
  • Coule, T. (2008) Strategies for Sustainability in the Voluntary Sector, Unpublished PhD Thesis, Sheffield Hallam University.
  • Chadwick-Coule, T (2011). Social dynamics and the strategy process : bridging or creating a divide between trustees and staff?, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, 40 (1): 33-56.

The advanced diagnostics are comprehensive – you’ll need 30 – 45 minutes to do them. They are designed as both CPD tools to develop individuals capacity, and as aids for organisation development so that governing bodies / social entrepreneurs can advance thinking from FairShares Model – Level 1 (Coaching/Social Audit) towards Levels 2 (Design and Development) and 3 (Reconstituting the Enterprise). The diagnostics collect stakeholder perspectives on the governance principles that are operating in a selected organisation.

Interpreting Results
