Technet has so much going on all the times behind the scenes, sometimes it’s tough to know what’s new. I was following @emilysc on twitter this morning when she announced the latest find! There is a portal for SharePoint Governance on Technet, but this particular paper hasn’t yet made it to the list, I’m sure it will be featured soon enough.
I’ve been working with Nicola Young (congrats on the new one!), Jennifer Mason, and John Ross from SharePoint911.com (Congrats to Laura Rogers Author on End User SharePoint, and MSPress SharePoint Admin book fame who just accepted a job with SharePoint911.) They did quite a bit on this paper, so I want to give them the credit (Nicola especially). This is one of a collection of three papers, we’re still waiting for the portal one to publish. So to recap here’s what we’ve got and what’s coming! (I’ll update the link when it’s live)
