Topic: Governance is not a four letter word! 

You cringe when you hear the word ‘governance.’ Here it comes, rules, standards, regulations, delay, fights with colleagues and worst of all bureaucracy. Governance discussions are some of the most difficult that many company managers will have.

In this session discover how governance does not have to be a four letter word. Good Governance is not bureaucratic or burdensome. Combined with typical lean techniques, bring all of the benefits of governance with none of the pain by adopting lean governance!

Responsive, unobtrusive, business enabling governance is not only possible, but the outcome of properly applying respect for people, respect for systems, and good critical thinking -behaviors we all have if we expose them. Make governance work in your organization.

Key takeaways are:

  1. Governance can be ‘light touch’ and effective
  2. Culture is critical to governance
  3. Governance liberates all from the tedious and enables innovation in harmony
