What is SharePoint Governance?


Live Webinar – March 24, 12:00-1:00 PM EST
Offered by ASPE (REP 2161) 1 CAT A Free
This is a 1 hour seminar and attendees will be awarded 1 PDU for participating.

SharePoint has fast become the most effective and useful collaborative tool that the business world has experienced in a very long time.

Why not? It offers the variety of functions, capabilities and the flexibility to meet the needs of most industries and businesses. But with this increased reliance on a growing platform, there comes a certain amount of risk. If mismanaged or not managed at all — there goes the effort, cost savings and benefit — right out the window.

Have you set out who will be in charge of migrating your shared drives to SharePoint? Who will be authorizing new sites to be created and setting out an information lifecycle to manage your data? What about indexing information so it can be easily searched should you need an answer to be at your fingertips? If any or all of this sounds like a challenge to you, you are not alone.

With this webinar we would like to give an overview of SharePoint Governance and an introduction to the following topics:

  • Understanding Governance and business Requirements
  • Defining a Governance Team
  • Critical SharePoint Decisions
  • Determining Best Practices for Your Organization
  • Ongoing Reviews of Governance Policies
