The shift in focus to workplace and social learning by HR and Learning professionals over the past few years is an significant one. And it’s not just a passing phase or fad. It is reflecting a fundamental change that is happening all around us – the move from a ‘push’ world to a ‘pull’ world, and the move from structure and known processes to a world that is much more fluid and where speed to performance and quality of results are paramount.

Provides background, commentary, and roadmaps around the (wise) L&D proposition that “…lessons learned by successful and effective managers are roughly:

70% from tough jobs

20% from people (mostly the boss)

 

10% from courses and reading”

By the end of this article, I may not be able to give you all the answers to the questions above, but I hope to at least add clarity and give you some practical structure and tactics you can use to achieve effective SharePoint governance.

In particular I will provide answers to the following key questions:

  • What is effective SharePoint governance?
  • How should I structure my governance teams?
  • How does business strategy fit into SharePoint governance?
  • What should my governance teams be doing?

Let’s start with what “effective” SharePoint governance is, and what it isn’t.

Social Business

DemingHill on “Why Executives HATE Social Media”

The truth is, I would LOVE to commit to social media in a significant way, but so far nobody in my organization has stepped forward with a cerebral, strategic, multi-generational, integrated, systematic, and sustainable methodology and roadmap for synergistically capitalizing on this medium over the long haul.

Indeed a long and rambling piece. In fact two pieces: first a long and rambling narcissistic first-person spiel about how CEO’s aren’t narcissistic, followed by a series of well-constructed executive-facing social selling points.

If it were indeed the journaled diatribe of a single individual, I’d question her stability.

As a light-hearted journey through the mind of the executive everyman, though, it makes for good reading.
