The coming together of a GROUP of elected or appointed individuals to ACT AS ONE for the purpose of GUIDING the organization of which they hold TRUSTEESHIP toward the accomplishment of its ENDS while establishing appropriate BOUNDARIES for accountability.
The job of the Board is to make sure that good things happen, and bad things don’t. The members of the board must be Trustworthy Trustees. How can the board be responsible for EVERYTHING without doing everything? Is there a system that allows organizations to achieve the outcomes they wish and avoids undesirable outcomes or activities?
The Policy Governance® model is a system to allows boards to fully assume their duty, to make sure that good things happen and bad things don’t. People in your organization will be aligned to do what they should be doing and not doing what they should not be doing.
If your organization knows Why it exists and wants to share it with the world, Policy Governance® is the starting point because everything rises and falls on leadership. Let me introduce you to a hope for your board, the Policy Governance model. Together we can learn the principles and develop the policies that will serve your board, and therefore your organization so it can achieve all it wishes to achieve.
