What is governance?

What is governance? Put simply, governance is the process of managing change. Based on a Greek word meaning “to steer,” governance is exactly that: steering or directing the content, the people who create it, and the systems that support it through both the day-to-day and long-term content lifecycles. In order to be effective, governance must consider both the people and the systems involved. If proper governance of both of these facets is maintained, then the content governance will be much simpler. You need to develop governance guidelines for every aspect of your unified content strategy: • Content models • Content • Reuse • Workflow • Metadata We suggest setting up a steering committee or governance board to set the initial conditions and then manage and maintain those conditions over time. The basic needs of such a group are similar whether they’re managing content or the “under the hood” stuff—the taxonomy and metadata.
