PARN has carried out a range of research projects on governance and from this has developed theories of good governance. However, we realise that each organisation is unique and has certain problems or issues exclusive to it. Therefore, we treat each governance review as a stand-alone research project and conduct tailored face-to-face and telephone interviews.
We normally conduct a survey of Council/Board members and, in some instances, organisation members to understand the concerns particular to your organisation. PARN can then analyse the current governance of your organisation in the context of your objectives and situation (i.e. size, composition and roles and responsibilities of the Council/Board, induction methods and eligibility criteria) and propose changes to meet those objectives.
PARN believes that the best solutions emerge from a combination of existing research and theories, and research on your particular organisation. PARN will provide you with ways in which the suggested changes can best be implemented.
