Disruptive Governance thinking for the masses - Take 2!
The latest release of "The SharePoint Governance Manifesto" is now available for purchase (or update if you already bought it, thanks by the way) here: bit.ly/SPGovManifesto
In this release we have added a great Introduction from SharePoint MVP, @Christian Buckley (@buckleyplanet) and a detailed and practical run-through of my 'seven waves of SharePoint Governance' approach.
The Manifesto now feels like a proper book, it's got 149 pages and at the time of writing we have 69 readers which is pretty awesome!
We've also set-up a LinkedIn group (http://linkd.in/Y7zj9H) to build a community around the Manifesto and SharePoint Governance in general, please join in the conversation.
Why should you read the book?
If you don’t read this book and we as a SharePoint community don’t begin to change the way we think and work, then we will, ad infinitum, continue to fail our organisations and customers and continue to deliver ineffectual, over- bearing, command-and-control, tree-killing, huge tomes of documentation that no-one reads or gains any value from.
I need you to stop talking SharePoint, stop thinking of Governance as the domain of the IT team…
Seriously, do your users give a crap about SharePoint?
No of course they don’t, they’re just trying to stay in a job and feed their family; seriously is SharePoint really more important than that?
No, of course not!
We all need to stop talking about Governance as if it’s something new or a magical antidote to all our SharePoint challenges.
It isn’t at all! But hell it's really, really important and we cannot ignore it's importance.
Thanks again for supporting "The SharePoint Governance Manifesto"!
