Understanding SharePoint Governance
All glory comes from daring to begin.
—Alexander Graham Bell
In this opening chapter, I introduce the book and define the term governance, as used in this book. Throughout this chapter, I will emphasize attitudes and practices as part of a governance process that goes beyond simply filling out a document template. As we progress through this chapter and the rest of the book, I highlight places where I have seen companies benefit from certain processes, and where they have faced challenges. From there, I provide a roadmap of the book by introducing each of the parts and chapters that follow.
