There are several different ways that boards can engage with and practically influence an organisation’s culture. For example, the selection of a CEO can have an enormous impact on culture. Setting out a code of conduct for the board and the organisation can also influence the organisation’s culture, as can establishing structures that incentivise desired behaviours.

One of the practical ways that a board can influence culture is through defining organisational values. Values are an expression of the organisation’s identity and are intended to guide the behaviours and decisions of the people involved with the organisation
