Dare to Compare Part 1 of 3: Great Governance in Canadian Hospitals

Dare to Compare Part 1 of 3: Great Governance in Canadian Hospitals
In their journey to find, understand, and apply enhanced governance practices, great boards explore how other boards do their work and adapt those insights to improve their performance. Great boards can dare to compare their board behaviors and systems to those in the work of three types of boards: Canadian Hospitals, U.S. Credit Unions, and U.K. Hospitals.
To help stimulate conversations in the Boardrooms of U.S. hospitals, we offer the three part series, “Dare to Compare” as a resource for boards to master the art and science of governance innovation.  This is the first of three and we hope these three short papers encourage your leadership to break through complacency and journey into the domain of high performance governance.
