A couple of weeks ago, I presented How Carolinas HealthCare System Governs SharePoint at the Charlotte SharePoint Saturday and I had a great time. The people who attended my session asked lots of questions, which always helps. This was my fourth time presenting at a community Saturday event (SPS Charlotte 2013, SPS Richmond 2013, and Carolina Code Camp 2013) and all of them have been well organized and run.
I thought it would be useful to share my team's experience introducing SharePoint governance over the last three years at CHS (Carolinas HealthCare System). We've had some great lessons learned, as well as solid and practical tips for implementing governance in large organizations. Our governance is still a work in progress, but anyone attempting to impose governance should understand that it may take years to get to where you need to be.
For those interested, I've uploaded my slide deck to the SPSEvents.org site. I've also uploaded my slides to slideshare.net.
