The Better Disclosure Toolkit

Why does Better Disclosure matter?

It’s well established that most contracts and disclosures are long, poorly designed and typically hidden away. Interestingly, consumers believe that easier to understand terms and conditions is the best thing organisations can do to restore trust.

This stream is about doing just that. You’ll get hands on with practical, evidence based approaches to Better Disclosure. You’ll do this by progressively learning about the Better Disclosure Canvas. You’ll take what you learn, apply it immediately and work with your peers to keep moving forward.

Lessons

Each lesson will:

  • Introduce you to a new concept
  • Help you reinforce what you’ve learned
  • Support you in practically applying what you’ve learned, and
  • Encourage active community engagement and social learning.

Here’s a brief overview of each lesson in this Primer Course.

The What and Why OF BETTER DISCLOSURE

You’ll begin developing an actionable understanding of the market context that supports the case for Better Disclosure. You’ll start refining how to discuss, pitch and advocate for approaches like this. And, you’ll wrap up with a clear sense that you are not alone. This is a global movement.

AN OVERVIEW OF THE EVIDENCE

You’ll start by learning about the uses and limitations of the broad body of evidence referenced in lesson 1. You’ll learn more about the specific fields and professions that are leading the Better Disclosure movement. And, you’ll gain access to three insights that are immediately usable in your day job.

The BETTER DISCLOSURE CANVAS

This is your introduction to the central artefact of this Toolkit, The Better Disclosure Canvas. You’ll learn about and remember the 8 consideration areas. You’ll have the ability to describe how to use the canvas sequentially. And, you’ll now have the ability to summarise how this tool can support organisations in designing better contracts and legal disclosures.

CROSS FUNCTIONAL PRACTICES

You’ll start learning how to construct the best possible Better Disclosure team. Kind of like the Avengers… You’ll also wrap up this lesson with greater confidence to support your efforts in connecting with this ideal team, getting them bought into the approach and preparing to get practical by working together.

GETTING STARTED AND NEXT STEPS

Better Disclosure isn’t always easy. There will be push back. This lesson will help you understand common challenges and pitfalls. It’ll also help you prepare to define the tiny first steps you’ll need to take to start the journey and demonstrate meaningful progress.
