Abstract

More and more organizations are beginning to create a position for an ethics officer or internal auditor. Such a position can be a great asset to an organization, but it is fraught with ambiguity. To whom does this auditor report? Is it a staff position under CEO authority? Or is it a staff position intended to report to the board? If the latter, how can the integrity of the CEO's position be maintained? In this brief article, John Carver clarifies how such a position can function effectively in a Policy Governance board.
