Associations face far greater challenges today than ever before. At the forefront of these challenges is the speed at which change is taking place. To remain relevant and maintain the association’s unique strengths, leaders need to act quickly and smartly. The Will to Govern Well shares common attributes of well-governed organizations and outlines a governance system that includes:
- The ability to make decisions based on knowledge rather than opinion;
- The need to create a culture of trust for staff and volunteers, with common agreement on what will define success; and
- A nimble infrastructure, with work and decision-making systems that can respond efficiently and effectively to the increasingly complex and changing marketplace represented by the organization.
The second edition of The Will to Govern Well provides a well-conceived and practical road map for developing strong governance that focuses on knowledge, trust and nimbleness.
The International Chamber of Commerce calls The Will to Govern Well “a treasury of enlightening, eye-opening, and at times startling revelations that could dramatically alter the way your association operates. The CAE Commission rates it as one of the top eight study resources for the Certified Association Executive exam.
