NAFCU 2017 Innovation Award
TCM – Transformational Change Model for Boards
DDJ Myers developed the Transformative Change Model (TCM) to facilitate change with boards and board members to strategically add the value required for a high-performing board. The changing board phenomena in credit unions necessitated a new mindset that modeled the change credit union boards wanted: the use of a consultative transformative change model to guide boards in co-creating their own board of the future rather than following a bland cookie-cutter governance model that may not work for the progressive organizations of today and tomorrow.

The Board Performance Assessment
The Board Performance Assessment was developed to meet the need to support credit union boards. The assessment is designed to guide boards in reaching their highest level of performance, and create a high standard of excellence between board and CEO, one of the most critical interactions within the credit union. The innovation lies in the assessment’s ability to make boards more cohesive and pinpoint critical areas where improvements could be made.
