10 ©2013 SUSAN HANLEY LLC 1. Align with business goals – what are we trying to accomplish? 10 Because that will drive how strict you need to enforce your rules

11 ©2013 SUSAN HANLEY LLC 2. Align with existing policies – especially information assurance and records management 11 Because you shouldn’t have to invent everything new and you may need to “design it in”

12 ©2013 SUSAN HANLEY LLC 3. Understand existing teams and roles – what is already in place? 12 Because people already have jobs and you may need to define new roles or relationships

35 My Lessons Learned  It’s really about both assurance and guidance – and it takes COMMITMENT – plan, plan, plan  No one cares about governance – until you make it all about them!  Less is more – avoid unnecessary bureaucracy – and long documents  Small chunks of consumable content – just in time!  Build best practices into your site templates and automate everything you can  A governance plan doesn’t replace training  … and training should include governance 35
