Noses in, Fingers out

The phrase ‘noses in, fingers out’ describes the accepted practice of the board governing the organisation and letting management get on with the operations.

While the nature of this relationship may have changed slightly in recent months as the boards of not-for-profits and sporting associations tackle COVID-19, it is important that the distinction between the roles of the board and management is maintained.

Boards must continue to be strategic in their thinking, asking the right questions and supporting management to get on with the job to put into action the plans that will lead organisations on the path to recovery.
