Have the right SharePoint 2010 governance

Based on my experience and knowledge gained when I was the BT Intranet manager and helping other organisations implement many SharePoint 2010 features I can help you too using my checklist.

SharePoint 2010 may be “the best sweetie shop in town” for all its range of features for people to use but the need for effective governance raises for intranet professionals a different set of challenges.  The strategy for SharePoint 2010 governance has to be very different to other publishing or collaborative tools.

I believe there are three approaches which can give your organisation the right governance it needs with SharePoint 2010. You don’t have to use just one. You can combine some of each to find the right blend for your organisation. What works best for you will depend on a number of different factors. Among them:

  • Restricting use – stop some features from being used
  • Encouraging best practice – guidance and training
  • Preventing problems – check content before it is published

Each of these approaches can support your governance strategy for SharePoint 2010. The key is to understand what you need to use SharePoint 2010 for.
