Key Principles of Policy Governance®

Welcome back! These are the foundational principles upon which we build a comprehensive system of governance.
  • Governance is a function of ownership not management.
  • Boards are the highest authority under ownership.
  • Boards are the initial authority within the organization
  • Board authority is group authority
  • Boards are accountable to the ownership for everything within the organization
  • Boards need to empower those to whom they delegate authority while remaining fully accountable for the use of their authority.
I will be speaking about these principles and their application on Thursday, October 4 at the Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership. More information here.
