The title question came to me during the recent ALI SharePoint for Internal Communications conference in NYC. So, I’ve written up my perspective in a new post for SharePoint Pro Magazine.

Clients will smile when they see the sample “wedding cake,” which gives a visual to typical governance structure. It frequently becomes one of two important tools used to explain an organization’s governance model. The other, our strategy decision lens, is a useful decision tool that connects business strategy to  your digital workplace strategy. The two together sum up how your governance model works; strategic ownership is an important part.

For those joining me in Chicago in July at ALI’s Intranet and Digital Workplace Summit, I’ll be addressing the topic of overall ownership along with other governance topics during my pre-conference workshop. I’m also conducting a conference session that outlines how to create a roadmap for implementation of your digital workplace.

Hope to see you there!
