Policy Governance® Simplified

Policy Governance® seems to be conceptually easy to grasp, but its explanations seem to stand in contrast to that fact.  Even when presented in a "Nutshell,"  the explanation tends to be pages long.  The words Theory and Model are integral parts of its explanation, emphasizing its holistic integration, but the specific items that make up the theory or model are not routinely or easily identified.

This is an attempt to provide that which seems to be missing, a simple way to describe Policy Governance®.  This is not meant to be a full description or a glossary of terms, and for many, especially those new to Policy Governance®, it will be too short.
