Governance is a concept that is becoming increasingly topical. Because of the scandals of course, but also by the awareness that appropriate governance is beneficial to the entire organization.
The line between governance and management is becoming clear, Directors receive more and more information and there are new training sessions every other day.
However “Governance” does not have the same meaning everywhere, each organization has its own rules and even if many directors are acting in good faith and they are full of good intentions… it’s not enough!
Our observations on a daily basis are full of surprises!
- “My managers do not read the documents”"Do you have templates like a resolution model or an agenda? “
- “It is our general shareholder’s meeting that decides and our board meets only once a year for paper signature”
- “The documents are given to the directors the day of board meeting”
- “My directors are only coming for the token… they don’t care, no director have ever been sued…”
The “everyday governance” concept was born based on these observations, the need to structure the operations of a board, to facilitate the director’s task, allowing directors to perform their work by accessing all the elements and do what they have to do: Govern!
