Importance of the Governance Board
I just wanted to share this article by Craigh Roth from Burton, on federating governance responsibilities. I think that Craigh has some important points that you can use for inspiration when establishing your SharePoint governance organisation.
The way we build the governance organisation (roles and responsibilities) using “The SharePoint Governance Framework” is a federated approach. But to be able to manage this according to changing business challenges and opportunities, we are working with a central board, that uses tools (we naturally primarily use Governance Center for SharePoint, as this is the toll we built 🙂 ) to overlook how people perform / comply in a federated governance model.
