Policy Governance® Board Excellence
One of the biggest challenges facing Boards that have adopted Policy
Governance® is how to continue to increase their skills in the use of the
governance model. The Board Excellence Assessment Manual has been developed to help Boards
identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. Boards will be able
to assess themselves over a comprehensive range of performance criteria: Owner
Relationship, Ends Management, Board Self-Management, Executive Relationship,
Board-Level Relationships, and Organizational Performance. These criteria
provide a framework for Policy Governance® performance excellence.

This assessment generally follows the format established by the Malcolm
Baldrige National Quality Award Criteria for Performance Excellence, although

John Carver, his organization, or the International Policy Governance®
Policy Governance® Board Excellence Manual is designed for Boards that want to be world
class. It provides an assessment designed for a deeper and more
thorough analysis of Board governance. This 30 plus page
document provides a comprehensive analysis of a Board's approach to Policy

the findings in the self-assessment.
