What is Policy Governance?

  1. 1. What is Policy Governance ? ®• set of 10 principles, designed by Dr. John Carver• used in its entirety, P.G. works like a system• aligns ownership - board - management/operations• links expectations and concepts to results and reality
  2. 2. What is Policy Governance ? ® (continued) • based on premise that boards must be accountable to moral/legal owners • translates wishes of owners into organizational performance • board role is one of “servant- leadership” • written board policies are organized into four categories: Ends, Executive Limitations, Governance Process, and Board- Management Delegation
  3. 3. Benefits of Using P.G.• owners are engaged with board in dialogue re: “What does success look like?”• all expectations and criteria for success for board and staff are pre-stated by the board in policy• owners see their input translate into results• lines of delegation and communication are clear
  4. 4. Benefits of Using P.G.• policies are concise, practical, and anticipate risk• staff have freedom and strategic agility to achieve board-stated results inside board-set parameters• role clarity means less duplication of effort• in every situation, at least something has already been said at some level, giving all a common starting point
  5. 5. Benefits of Using P.G. • a comprehensive, evidence-based monitoring system maximizes board’s ability to be accountable • directors can control without having to do • clarity, focus => ability to do more with less • multiple P.G. publications, resources, networks are available to inform and motivate practitionersPolicy Governance® is a service mark of John Carver.
