The International Organization for Standardization has published the first ever international benchmark for good governance with unanimous approval. The International Standard, ISO 37000, provides guidance for the governance of organizations and a common language for all sizes and types of organizations across jurisdictions.
“The pursuit of purpose is at the centre of all organizations and is, therefore, of primary importance for the governance of organizations. Good governance of organizations lays the foundation for the fulfilment of the purpose of the organization in an ethical, effective and responsible manner in line with stakeholder expectations.” ISO 37000
Good governance not only builds trust, it improves business performance and contributes to social and environmental integrity. ISO 37000 provides governing bodies with the tools they need to govern well, such that their organizations can perform effectively while behaving ethically and responsibly.
This internationally accredited course is presented by the standard’s co-editor, Carolynn Chalmers, and provides an excellent foundational understanding of ISO 37000.
The training programme is an online self-study digital training course.
The course comprises online videos, written text and take-away documents followed by an examination.
