Free Online Self-Directed Co-operative Governance Course, offered by the University of Saskatchewan Centre for the Study of Co-operatives
To be successful, co-ops must properly answer the basic governance question: who gets to decide what? This course examines how governance determines co-op success. We look at three key ideas: ensuring people work well together, creating a successful view of the future, and building legitimacy. Using real world cases, we discuss how these ideas translate into practical features like board structure and member engagement as we explore how to get the right people making the right decisions.
