Presenter: Jannice Moore
Moderator: Karen Fryday-Field

This forum will examine the factors that have been found through experience to be helpful in sustaining the use of Policy Governance and maintaining the integrity of the system. What are the factors boards face today that result in risk to sustainability of the model’s use, and what actions can be taken to mitigate those risks?” Below you will find more information on Jannice and a summary of what will be discussed at the forum.

Session Outline

Sustaining Policy Governance Integrity
While Policy Governance® is over 30 years old, it is still relatively new in the timeline of the bigger governance picture. It is also significantly different from more traditional approaches to governance. How does a board sustain the self-discipline needed to effectively govern using this system? Board member turn-over, changes in CEOs, expectations of external funders, the surrounding culture – all of these can conspire to a board losing its momentum, or losing the system entirely.

In this session, we will examine some of the typical trouble spots that create the danger of losing momentum. Then we will discuss some habits that have proven effective in maintaining the integrity of the system, while still allowing for customization to meet the unique needs of different boards. Finally, we will think together about some of the sources of influence that boards and consultants can use to influence lasting change in their board’s behaviors.
