What is governance in relation to the SharePoint? Quite simply, governance is a small committee of professionals who set policies and standards that limit the flexibility and use of a computing environment. In the past, governance has been driven by the desire to reduce costs, improve system stability, ensure security and meet regulatory compliance requirements. Often, governance teams have drifted from one side of the coin to the other: excessively stringent rules that basically remove any freedom from knowledgeable employees or giving free rein to any and all users, regardless of skill or knowledge levels. Finding a good balance is the key to truly functional governance. Every organization has unique goals, constraints and technology histories that have to be taken into account for creating an effective governance model. There are, however, common characteristics that describe effective governance no matter what form it takes.
