Free event

All organizations need rules and a defined sense of direction and purpose. Effective governance gives more control to owners, offers employees a clear idea of their role, while those outside the organization have a better informed view of how it operates.

But how can organizations ensure that they have the right measures in place? In August, BSI published the first British Standard (BS 13500) for the effective governance of organizations. Developed by governance experts, BS 13500 – Code of practice for delivering effective governance of organizations – can help mitigate the risk of poor governance. It’s a powerful baseline which can be used to implement and ensure effective governance, and is intended to be used as a basic checklist to ensure that all elements of a good governance system are in place.

The standard has recently been piloted by five organizations - BeecherMaddenCarillion, Eko UKJRI and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust. Join us at our free workshop where you can find out:

  • The benefits of implementing the standard including how the standard can help ensure that good governance can be delivered across an organization
  • The ease of implementing the standard and what works well during implementation
  • What problems and challenges might be encountered when implementing the standard
  • What the organizations have learnt from piloting the standard.
