New To Quality or Need A Refresher? Let ASQ's Quality Resources Help. Our Topic for This Week is Governance.

The international standard on social responsibility, ISO 26000, defines organizational governance as "a system by which an organization makes and implements decisions in pursuit of its objectives." Governance systems include the management processes designed to deliver on performance objectives while considering stakeholder interests.
The Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) highlights the importance of concepts such as credibility, transparency, and accountability in establishing effective governance. Corporate governance is, GARP notes, "doing the right things for the organization and doing things the right way independent of personal interests." In this context, "organization" can refer to many different types of groups. For example, a business, an institution, a professional society such as ASQ, and even a family may be considered an organization. Governance is applicable in these types of organizations.
