Board Governance Research - Institute on Governance

Board Governance Research

Your organization’s governance journey can be a guide for others, just as others’ experiences can help you avoid potential pitfalls.

We stand on the shoulders of those who’ve come before us. And learning from others can help us avoid costly errors, saving us critical time.

In a world of finite resources and high stakes, why not borrow from the experiences who’ve walked the path before? We conduct research, including case studies and literature reviews, on a number of current and emerging topics, including partnership building, collaborative governance, conflict of interest, improving member engagement, amalgamations, and the role of the board in stakeholder relations.

Our board governance research can be a model for, and customized to, you and your organization.

Sharing your experiences (as an after the fact case-study, for example) can also save others time, money, and effort – and help improve the governance ecosystem.

These are just some of the benefits of being part of the IOG research network.

Let’s discuss how we might work together. For you. For others.
