SharePoint Conference Presentation: Governance, Politics, and Diplomacy with SharePoint

October 17, 2009 at 7:55 pm | Posted in Governance, Microsoft SharePoint | Leave a comment

I’m packing my bags and heading for Vegas for the Microsoft SharePoint Conference.  If you are going, make sure to see my presentation on governance.  I’ll be standing up in front of 400 people, the majority of whom are “IT Professionals”, and telling them that the IT Pro role isn’t the right one to be writing a statement of governance!  Remember that scene from the Blues Brothers that starts with the band wondering why there is chicken wire in front of the stage?  That’ll be me.

Note: I say the IT Pro role, not any one individual person.  Someone who is an IT Pro, but wants to step outside that role because of the challenge or an interest in management would certainly be appropriate.

Hope to see you there!

Governance, Politics, and Diplomacy with SharePoint: Success Factors Beyond Technology

10/21/2009 10:30 AM (Room: Lagoon L)

Few concepts have generated as much interest to SharePoint implementers as governance. Unfortunately, few concepts have been as misused as well. Governance has been viewed as a project, a document, a synonym for “maintenance,” an admin manual, or a magic-bullet solution for SharePoint success. But governance is none of those things. Craig Roth will describe his frequently cited definition of SharePoint governance including which problems it addresses – and which it does not. Mr. Roth will also walk through an outline for creating your own SharePoint Statement of Governance and describe the skills necessary to create it.
