Governance Topics and Roles

I have been on a Governance kick the last month or so. If you want to learn more about governance and how it relates to SharePoint you need to understand that it is split into two areas.

  1. Roles/Responsibilities (~50%)
  2. Policies/Procedures (~50%)

Below I have taken our standard model and summarized them into these main roles.

Roles

  • Core Team (PM's, Business Owners, Administrators)
  • Infrastructure
  • Service/Help Desk
  • Application Administrators
  • Application Developers
  • Business Units (Owners, Contributors, Members)
  • Trainers
  • Business Analysis (TBD)

Below is an example schedule with the types of roles that should attend.
