ANNOUNCEMENT: SharePoint Governance Framework Community
We are thrilled to announce that today, we have launched a brand new community; The SharePoint Governance Framework community.
As a part of the Microsoft Technical Communities, this new community is a global “sharing and caring” platform for everyone that cares about SharePoint Governance. From our endeavors in the SharePoint world for more than a decade, we know that SharePoint Governance continue to be a pain point for most companies. But the ways to solve the issues are as many as there are SharePoint installations.
We think – well, we know – that the people that carry the responsibility for delivering quality SharePoint services, information managers and CIO’s are desperately searching for experiences and best practices for SharePoint Governance. And with a large number of people talking about the need, we think that it is time to start talking about the solution – or solutions.
At SharePointPeople, we have worked on “SharePoint Governance Framework” for more than 6 years now. This framework is becoming the most complete set of procedures and practices for governing SharePoint that we know of. From the work we have done with companies all over Europe, we have learned that many of the tools and processes you need, are the identical. So why not share the vast experience base that people have, and try to consolidate all that into a common taxonomy and understanding of what SharePoint Governance mean, and how to apply it in the best possible way.
This is what the new SharePoint Governance Framework Community is all about. Everyone can join and we hope that a lot of people will. There are no strings attached, but naturally we hope that community members are ready to share experiences, pain points and successes. We will be sharing everything we have learned over the years, and will publish updates to the framework in the community, moving forward.
We have a strong belief in using “social” to drive quality and knowledge of SharePoint governance to a higher level. That’s why we are investing in building and driving this community; with resources to help grow the community as well as answering questions and providing feedback. Nobody knows how this will evolve, but for now we hope that you would like to join us in the community and help spark the conversations.
