Good governance helps taskforces stay on track by enabling effective and efficient decision making, providing clear lines of authority to facilitate the escalation and resolution of issues, and enable senior leaders to guide the direction of projects.

Good governance includes having a strong authorising environment – knowing who your key decision-makers are and actively keeping them engaged to generate their support and buy-in. This is especially important for taskforce work, which is often required to work across boundaries, remove barriers and come up with new solutions to complex cross-cutting problems – the authority and support of senior decision-makers empowers a taskforce to achieve its objectives.
