What is Governance?
“Governance is the systems and processes concerned with ensuring the overall direction, supervision and accountability of an organisation”
The Governance of Voluntary and Community Organisations An Overview, 2003
Governance is a term that is used widely, but often not understood. Governance is frequently defined as the systems by which organisations are run. This includes the laws and regulations with which they must comply.

At Governance Works we believe that when a board has good governance practices in place it impacts on the performance of the entire organisation.
