SharePoint Collaboration Governance Plan

I have been working with a number of people over the last few months to put together a plan that would really work for a company.  It essentially takes a number of classic examples, plus some best practices and runs through what I (and Paul Culmsee) like to call the choose your own adventure of SharePoint.

This Collaboration Governance plan is the essentials of coming up with a service offering that’s focused on the idea of an SharePoint as collaboration.  Now of course there are a ton of scenarios in which you CAN deploy SharePoint, and this plan takes one in a single direction.  It takes that adventure book and actually chooses a bunch of things from global deployment choices, to quotas, templates and so on.

Kudos to John Ross and Jennifer Mason who helped me see the sections that I was missing, and Paul Culmsee who has a knack for seeing how things should be organized.

If you enjoyed the Sample Governance Plan, you should really like the….

I LOVE traveling our little planet. In my quest to visit every country in the world I've got about 35 UN countries left! I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. Yes, I'm also a geek. I've been recognized as a Microsoft Regional Director, a community leadership award. When not traveling, I'm in paradise in sunny southern California as I'm a Senior IT Manager at Blizzard Entertainment.
