The word governance is derived from Latin that suggests the notion of "steering". In general, organizational governance consists of the set of processes, customs, & policies, that affect the way people direct, administer or control an organization.
More specifically, PMI-CTT uses governance to work towards common objectives, make decisions, generate authority, and exercise power. with all its stakeholders. From the PMI-CTT charter approved by PMI in 2001, the chapter continues to mature in how it conducts its business. More attention to good governance has already provided the benefits of transparent and repeatable processes.
