Intentional Governance: Advancing Boards Beyond the Conventional

Hospitals and health systems are challenged on every front: enormous regulatory and public scrutiny, finances and inadequate reimbursement, and the demand for high-quality patient care. If good governance truly is more than a haphazard collection of governance practices, if "high-performing boards” are truly culture-driven teams, then they need to do what every good team and athlete does: learn, grow, and improve. A board’s primary responsibility is one of oversight. In order to conduct this important job, the board must look critically at itself, its own culture and performance, and ensure it is functioning at its peak. This publication focuses on board dynamics and culture, and a related concept we call intentional governance, which involved deliberate and intentional processes that enable the board to realize its highest potential.
