User Guide (Taken directly from the book):

If you thought from the cover image that it was about sailing, then sorry it's not, although it does get a mention.

This book is about the challenges, impact and approaches to implementing SharePoint Governance in your organisation.

The reality is that, although the basis of this book is Microsoft SharePoint, it is actually relevant to any social or collaborative platform (Yammer, IBM Lotus Connections, Jive, Huddle, etc.) that you and your organisation may be using.

Actually, there's a lot you can take from this book and apply to the Governance of pretty much anything!

I wrote this Manifesto to be three things for you:

1. Disruptive because the status quo really isn't delivering

2. Thought provoking because none of this is easy

3. Informative for both you and your organisation.

The disruption comes from the early chapters where we will "Poke the Box" as Seth Godin would say (Godin, 2011 <>) and highlight our challenges with Governance itself.

The mid-section of this book is more visual and questioning. It illustrates key points, both positive and negative, about our perceptions and the future of SharePoint Governance.

Finally, in the last section, we focus on being informative in a positively disruptive way. We will explore how you can apply my '7 Waves of Governance' in your organisation and projects. An approach to Governance which has been developed over the last 4 years and successfully implemented with a range of clients from SME to global organisations, as well as within a number of Microsoft partners. We will consider in detail how this approach works and the significant benefits of implementing and embedding SharePoint Governance within your organisation.

The combination of these insights and approaches will, I hope, be informative, engaging and offer practical advice that will help you deliver organisational value by positively disrupting your technology projects.
