Governance score

In the second panel, Powell Governance helps administrators situate themselves according to the governance score. The score is derived from the governance recommendations that have been achieved.

The maximum score for governance depends on the number of recommendations, which will be calculated according to the governance setup. The goal of the governance score is to push administrators to improve their governance practices continuously.Capture d'écran 2024-04-23 104914.png

Administrators will improve the score by following the governance recommendations. The guidance for the specific actions administrators need to take will be displayed on the recommendations page.

The Powell Governance governance score calculation is based on KPIs of the tenant health overview and the governance recommendations achievements. Here is a dedicated article detailing each criteria taken into account.
