Assessing your governance involves evaluating and analysing a specific part of your governance. This can help you make more effective decisions, stay on track, and improve your governance.


Assessing your governance is useful when:


  • you’re about to set up a new organisation, community or nation
  • you want to improve the governance of your organisation, community or nation
  • you want to develop your governance for nation building and self-determination efforts
  • you have a particular issue you want to address, or goal you want to achieve.
