Our third White Paper focused on governance, defining the differences between management and governance, is now available for downloading. It incorporates the thoughts in our last two major posts on this topic updated with ideas developed during the ISO TC 258 Governance Study Group meeting in Pretoria
Note: these are our thoughts not the ISO Study Groups, although hopefully there will be a fair degree of consensus – to see our full series of post select ‘Governance’ from the Category option or: Click Here.
The new WP 1084 Governance Systems & Management Systems looks at the different but interdependent functions fulfilled by an organisation’s governance system and its management system. (Download WP 1084).
The other two White Papers in this series are:
- WP 1033 focused on Corporate (or Organisational) Governance (Download WP 1033).
- WP 1073 that deals with the subset of organisational governance focused on governing Projects, Programs and Portfolios, PPP Governance (Download WP 1073).
From our perspective, the next couple of developments in this space will be internal to the ISO Study Group. The intention of the group is to have its report completed by March 2013 and based on the findings achieve consensus on the way forward, hopefully to develop a formal ISO specification or standard dealing with the important subject of PPP governance.
