Intentional Governance Guides
Share |


Creating an effective board takes work and intent. We define Intentional Governance as: deliberate and intentional processes addressing board structure, dynamics, and culture that enable the board to realize its highest potential.

There are seven essential elements of governance: board recruitment, board structure, board culture, education and development, evaluation and performance, continuous governance improvement, and leadership succession planning. Each guide in this series is designed to provide takeaway tools and assist readers in developing customized Intentional Governance plans related to each essential element.


Board Culture: An Intentional Governance Guide: Trends, Tips, and Tools

Each of the seven pillars of Intentional Governance should be reviewed and assessed periodically in order to ensure ongoing high performance at the board level. Board culture is an important pillar to address in today’s healthcare environment because the board’s culture is a critical underlying and intangible aspect of how the board functions. This toolbook is designed to aid boards in understanding the importance of culture, assessing their culture, and making steps to change it.
