Policy Governance Model - 101 Introduction
Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, United States
Policy Governance Model: “Theory-Based Integrated Framework” with ten comprehensive set of integrated principles that allows governing boards to realize an owner-accountable organization.
Beginning with the recognition of the fundamental reasons that boards exists and the nature of board authority, Policy Governance integrates a number of unique principles designed to enable an accountable board leadership.
In summary, The Policy Governance Model accomplishes:
1. Board linkage with Ownership in order to memorialize both the Ends and Executive Limitation Policies.
2. A comprehensive; yet minimalist, set of policies expressed with the board’s “one voice” and which directs and protects the organization through any possible situation.
3. Precise delegation to management of Ends Policies, Executive Limitations (unacceptable means) are clear and performance will be acceptable within any reasonable interpretation.
4. To keep the Board in compliance with its’ own policies and that there is a clear delegation of authority, responsibility and accountability to the boards’ servant-leader: the Chief Governance Officer.
5. Monitoring and compliance against pre-established performance criteria must be proven to the Board. Nothing less will be acceptable.
