Board Governance

QNET Board Governance Criteria

Learn to assess the effectiveness of your board using the QNET Board Governance Criteria.

Designed to be used with a wide range of governance models and featuring 23 Indicators, the Criteria is about the effectiveness of boards, board processes, board outcomes, board governance, and other areas

relevant to board work. It is not about organizational operations.

Each Indicator is drawn from established principles of effective board governance.

These principles cover:

  • Organizational Purpose
  • Client Focus
  • Responsibilities
  • Communication
  • Accountability

QNET would be happy to provide you with the QNET Board Governance Criteria, as well as two free assessment tools to facilitate your board discussion:
