Delivering Good Governance in Practice – Remote Training /

Book now


Recent and ongoing global events have severely tested governance in all organisations, from all sectors and all countries. The delivery of good proactive governance is essential for a successful and sustainable future.

This turbulent and challenging time, replete with economic, social and ecological risk and uncertainty, has made good governance ever more critical as we rewrite established national and international interactions. The stakeholder voice has never been greater, and the need for effective networked, integrated, and forward-looking governance is critical to the way we all make decisions and implement them in the future.

This course will facilitate your understanding of the fundamentals and universal concepts of good governance and the components of an integrated governance framework, and will equip you with the insights, knowledge, and skills essential to deliver good governance in practice. It takes delegates well beyond meeting structural and process requirements into achieving effective governance performance within a conducive culture. It will educate, enthuse, and empower organisations, teams and individuals in pursuit of excellent governance, responsible leadership, good management and operations. It examines the components of a fit-for-purpose governance framework and how this helps mitigate risk and add value, bolster reputation, and create a climate of stakeholder trust that supports effective well-informed decision making.
