Policy Review – Maintaining Policy Governance Principles

If your board has been using Policy Governance for some time, or perhaps has implemented the model without outside assistance, you may benefit from an external review of your policies. This review can identify for your board’s consideration:

  • Ends policies that are not really Ends
  • Executive Limitations policies
  • Better organization to apply the Policy Sizes principle
  • Suggested improvements for clarity and completeness
  • Other areas in which your policies may be inconsistent with Policy Governance principles


Monitoring Report Assessment – Improving Your Board Monitoring

The CEO will find this service of particular value. The Governance Coach will provide written suggestions for the CEO and staff to whom the CEO delegates monitoring reports regarding improving monitoring reports so they are consistent with best practice application of Policy Governance principles.

    Governance Audit – Compare Your Governance with Policy Governance Best Practices

    The Governance Coach will provide a written assessment of current governance practice compared to best practice application of Policy Governance principles, based on review of written documentation, including policies, monitoring reports, board minutes and a written survey of board members.
