In this newest book on the Policy Governance approach to board leadership created by John Carver, Caroline Oliver gives readers practical, hands-on tools for getting the most from the system in the day-to-day operation of their boards. In the Policy Governance Fieldbook, Oliver explored the experience of 11 organizations that succeeded and failed in using Policy Governance. Now, she has drawn upon the most important lessons from that experience as well as her experience in helping many more organizations along the Policy Governance road to governing excellence.  The result is a wealth of tools and resources for helping readers to: Decide if Policy Governance is right for them Identify and link with owners Develop means policies Create Ends policies Monitor Policies Run meetings Evaluate Plan for the future

Praise for Getting Started with Policy Governance "This is a great read! Such a book is long overdue. It's comprehensive, accessible, and fills a big gap in the market." —Geraldine Peacock, former chair, The Charity Commission "Getting Started with Policy Governance is a very interesting addition to the literature on Policy Governance. It will be useful to both boards getting started on Policy Governance as well as those who want to refresh their ideas on using it." —Judy Mitchell, former chair, Oxfam Australia "This is a very well-written and easy to understand must-read for all those interested in effective board governance. The Policy Governance framework is a coherent model that allows all types of boards to understand their role and those of the chair (or chief governance officer) and the CEO. Oliver explains clearly how the model works and introduces the reader to the necessary tools to create the framework." —John Zinkin, CEO, Securities Industry Development Corporation "For boards wanting to raise their game, this book is very thought-provoking and helpful. It's a must for all board members. Board chairs—ignore it at your peril!" —John Bruce, chairman, Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust "Caroline Oliver has written a comprehensive, yet concise, book which provides an excellent introduction to those new to John Carver's highly influential Policy Governance model and, at the same time, systematically guides boards through the implementation of the model." —Yuen Teen Mak, regional research director (Asia-Pacific), Watson Wyatt Worldwide, and codirector, Corporate Governance and Financial Reporting Centre, National University of Singapore "Getting Started with Policy Governance provides an excellent guide for boards considering a change to Policy Governance leadership. Oliver's expertise shines through with her skillful explanations, useful examples, sample policies, and many tools shared. A must-read for any board considering Policy Governance." —Carol-Ann Yakiwchuk, president, the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association
"What a truly outstanding and thought-provoking book. It changed how I work with Boards overnight and forever! If we all took the advice within the pages of this book, then organizations would deliver greater value to their owners and be better places to work."—Dr. Jay Bevington, Assurance and Advisory Public Sector, Deloitte & Touche LLP "This is a great read! Such a book is long overdue. It's comprehensive, accessible, and fills a big gap in the market."—Geraldine Peacock, former chair, The Charity Commission
