NZ Rugby deploys BoardPro

Our organisations need the best support structures off the field and that starts and ends in the boardroom, says NZ Rugby chief operations officer Nicki Nicol

As part of the agreement, boardPro’s solution will be made available to 26 Provincial Unions and the five Super Rugby clubs.

NZR chief operations officer Nicki Nicol says like many boards in New Zealand, Provincial Union and Super Rugby boards are made up of busy people juggling multiple roles and any tools that streamlined processes for them meant they could spend more time on the important business of providing strategic oversight of the game. 

“We know to deliver the best performance on the field our organisations need the best support structures off the field and that starts and ends in the boardroom,” says Nicol.

Nicol says signing on with BoardPro, is part of NZR’s goal to strengthen and support Provincial Union and Super Rugby boards.

As part of the agreement, boardPro’s solution will be made available to 26 Provincial Unions and the five Super Rugby clubs. 

boardPro helps not-for-profit and small-to-medium size businesses grapple with board processes without the need for expensive software or dedicated staff. 

Minutes can be taken by anyone at the meeting, action points are assigned, and follow-ups generated automatically. 

“Ensuring our rugby organisations operate well is key for us,” says Nicol.

“It’s essential our national game runs smoothly and effectively at all levels across New Zealand, and to do this we need the right tools for the job.”

For organisations like those in rugby, having a strong board governance process is essential, says BoardPro co-founder and CEO Brett Herkt. 

“Good board governance is the last thing any CEO wants to think about, but getting it right is essential for organisations that want to grow and develop,” says Herkt, in a statement. 

He says BoardPro believes that making it easy for boards to operate means they’ll spend more time governing the organisation and less time trying to organise themselves.
