Governance Maturity Checklist

To fully meet the rising standards of stakeholder capitalism, business leaders must have a grasp of all the workflows, insights, policies and moving parts that make up an organization, its governance and its activities. Without this “big picture,” leaders may fail to make the right decisions at critical times and can expose their organizations to extremely costly governance deficits and operational risks. This checklist is organized into the four core competencies of modern governance, and the best practices that correspond to each:

  • Board & Committee Effectiveness
