I felt that Carver set forth a compelling case in a practical readable style. The Carvers place their thesis right out front, saying that there are fundamental differences between governance and management and that governance is not management one level higher. There is a simple compelling logic to the entire book. I highly recommend this book to any board or upper management who interface with a board.

We were using the Carver Policy Governance Model on the non-profit Board to which I was elected to serve. It can be a bit cumbersome to figure out how this model works unless you have some help with the navigation. We were looking for a book which would serve as the orientation, and this book is a decent primer on the model.

There are other books on the model, but they are really quite lengthy and you have to ask if your Board members really want to read all the case studies, etc.

We found this book to be a good orientation tool for new Board members.

This book was exactly what my Board members needed to better understand nonprofit structure. The book arrived just in time for our board meeting. Everyone was pleased with it...
