Glatt Consulting’s Governance Consulting solution is a development and facilitation experience designed to help your board build and implement a best-practice, principles-driven governance framework and complementary set of board responsibilities.

About This Discipline

Your Objectives

What do people want out of your governance efforts and structure? Following is a list of commonly sought-after objectives we’ve distilled from our high-performing credit union clients:

  • They want to govern well and with purpose.

  • They want your governance efforts to be meaningful and purpose-aligned.

  • They want a clear governance framework with well-defined and understood responsibilities.

  • They want a governance model that is easy to describe to prospective board members, and that creates context for board member onboarding and development.
