I spend a lot of time talking about governance and I often have to explain what governance is. So one more time – governance is the process used to direct and manage operations.
If you follow my writing you know that I believe governance is everywhere, businesses, non-profits, families and anywhere you go. Imagine driving a car in your area if there were no traffic lights or stop signs and drivers did not need to be licensed.
If you saw any of the news from Hurricane Harvey, you saw a situation where normal governance does not exist. The roads were rivers, the houses were swimming pools and normal operations were not taking place. When governance is working properly you do not notice it.
In our groups when we feel like we are not getting anything done – look to the governance in place and see how it can be improved.
