governance - a process manual

About the Book

This process manual describes the activities of the executive committee at a private technology firm, perhaps a firm operating in a regulated industry such as finance or health, where clients and auditors expect a level of demonstrable operational governance. It concerns:

  • Establishment of a strategy and turning that strategy into actionable goals.
  • Oversee risks to the Company’s objectives and the process of managing those risks.
  • Review the operational and financial performance of the Company.

This manual includes concepts distilled from a number of prominent sources, but has been refined to meet the realities on the ground for private technology firms. It is not a ivory tower treatise on best practices, but rather practical guidance for a lean private firm that needs to manage its operations and finance, and to demonstrate such oversight to auditors. This manual does not cover governance issues such as when and how to hold board meetings, that is well covered by a variety of sources in all jurisdictions.

I am writing these manuals because I've never found anything similar that is worthwhile.
