Applied Governance Advice

At the IOG, we specialize in applied governance advice. That means giving guidance or recommendations related to the practical implementation and application of governance principles within your public purpose organization in response to your specific circumstances or unique needs. In short, we provide fit-for-purpose governance advice you can use.

Our governance experts bring decades of collective governance experience at the federal and provincial government levels, in senior management and leadership positions, in policy development and program delivery. We have advised governments, from the inside as public servants and outside as consultants, on governance systems, structures, processes, and practices. We have advised leading not-for-profit organizations on board governance and we have advised scientists and researchers on specialized innovation governance.

The IOG’s Governance Assessment Framework is your principles-based, Good Governance Checklist to improved public sector governance performance.
