Category: Governance

Businessdictionary.com defines Governance as the establishment of policies, and continuous monitoring of their proper implementation, by the members of the governing body of an organisation. It includes the mechanisms required to balance the powers of the members (with the associated accountability), and their primary duty of enhancing the prosperity and viability of the organisation. This can also be referred to as corporate governance.

In short, it is a method of governing the company like a sovereign state, instating its own customs, policies and laws to its employees from the highest to the lowest levels.

Therefore, our Governance Category is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

At my first European SharePoint Conference in Berlin, I presented a session on SharePoint’s social media scorecard, discussing where the 2010 platform performed — and underperformed — around core social collaboration features in comparison to direct and indirect competitors. In the couple years since that event, its amazing to look back at how much not only the technology has advanced, but also at how the messaging around the social organization has begun to take hold.
