Welsh Assembly shadow board enables staff to get involved

September 2007
People Management;9/6/2007, Vol. 13 Issue 18, p10
This article focuses on the significance of the creation of a shadow board in the Welsh Assembly government. The shadow board has benefited both board members and employees. The shadow board, traditionally a private-sector model, was established in 2006 and gives employees the chance to develop new skills as well as influence the management board. At the same time, the management board has benefited from more diverse views and a grass-roots-level approach to major management issues.
