What is your SharePoint Business Model: Governance basics

Recently I was doing some research on SharePoint Governance. I was browsing through some slideshare presentations and there I found this absolute gem: the SharePoint Business Model.

Ben McMann from Tribridge talks in this presentation about the SharePoint Business Model. In my view, any project ( not just SharePoint) should start with making up such a thing. This should be the basis of your governance, the start on why and how you are going to manage things.

I know I am going to do this exercise before I start a new project!

What’s Your SharePoint Business Model?

I have printed out A1 versions of the Business Model sheet and I always keep a bunch of them rolled up in a tube in the car. It is very useful when I am at a client and they want to discuss new deployments or changes in the governance structure. Awesome material!
