SharePoint Governance Enforcement: Taking Corrective Actions to Meet Evolving Organizational Needs
So you've heard about "Governance" from all angles in the SharePoint community – the fact that you need "People" to define "Policies", but what "Processes" are actually required to bring this to fruition? This session will introduce the three P's and the business requirements that drive SharePoint governance. In this session we will discuss the types of policies that organizations use within their SharePoint Governance plans.
From this session you should walk away with:
• An understanding of what the key concepts of SharePoint Governance is
• An understanding of the business requirements that drive SharePoint Governance
• An understanding of the types of policies you could have in your SharePoint Governance Plan
