Governance Resources
This page contains several industry resources about learning governance and 'best practices.' Feel free to review and contact me if you would like to discuss any of these items. Also, please see the white paper, 'Learning Governance as a Cost Savings Strategy' co-authored with Rob Pannoni, as well as our article in CLO Magazine, June 2009 'Perspectives on the State of Governance'.

As an added update, I invite to review new solutions in the corporate sustainabiltiy field. There are many parallels with what the corporate sustainability movement is doing and what learning groups have gone through the past few years. Please see Sustainability In Practice™ if this might be of interest to you.
