Episode 5: Lisa Welchman on Community Governance

October 2nd, 2020

Lisa Welchman is a digital governance consultant and the author of Managing Chaos: Digital Governance by Design. In this podcast we discuss the growth cycles of organizations, changes in governance since Managing Chaos was released, and how corporate governance models can help communities of any size.

"The choice to do nothing is still a choice. And you shouldn't be naive about that and refusing to look at the consequences of your behavior. Whether that's an individual a business, a nonprofit organization, a Girl Scout troop, whatever. Like that's just not okay, that's not what mature people do. That's what children do. That's what adolescents do. And I feel like the industry of technology and digital spaces is moving out of adolescence into adulthood and it's just not gonna fly anymore." - Lisa Welchman
