4:15 PM Creating Governance Structures that Don’t Flounder – No Matter The Function

Mission, purpose, customers, business case, processes that should be covered, a business
model, costing, charge outs, and who is part of the groups are all essential elements of
governance models. However, we all know that governance goes much deeper.

In this session, participants will:
• Explore governance models that are working well
• Examine governance hiccups and how to resolve them
• Evaluate how to get others involved in the governance model, even though they might not be in the C-Suite boardroom
