  • Monitoring implementation progress towards this direction
  • Developing a governance policy ‘umbrella’
  • Specifying key outcomes and approving resources to achieve them
  • Approving, supporting, evaluating and rewarding the Chief Executive
  • Setting standards and evaluating the Board’s own performance
  • Ensuring there is appropriate succession planning
