Within an organization, management is responsible for operations and the board is responsible for governance. One of the difficulties with this division of roles and responsibilities is that management and board are often uncertain or unclear about what is governance.

This workshop will examine:

  • What is governance? Why is it important?
  • Core principles of good governance
  • Analyzing different governance models
  • Assessing what kind of board you are
  • Deciding what kind of board you would like to be
  • Tools and strategies to implement good governance in your organization
