Minding the Shop: The Conformance Function

Minding the Shop: The Conformance Function

In the previous episode, I outlined the board’s strategic function. In this episode I switch the focus to the conformance function. Conformance is about accountability. Accountability in governance is exercised through ensuring compliance, monitoring and evaluation, and maintaining control. Ultimately, a board exercises its conformance function to ensure the organisation can continue to work toward its mission.
