Hi,

I am looking to start to put together a Governance Document for my companies SharePoint sites.  I have never done this before, I've looked on the MS sites, found one or two articles, what I am looking for is if anyone has actually created a document themselves, pointers, links to useful content, exactly what was included within your document?

I don't recommend creating a document - because people never seem to read governance documents! Instead, think about creating a SharePoint site where you create governance content as individual, topic-focused pages using metadata to tag the pages to an app, audience (e.g. site owner, end user, etc.), and topic. If you are looking for content - or questions to help guide your decisions to create content - take a look at http://tiny.cc/M365GovQuestions. This document provides a framework for making key governance decisions and I update it often as more "knobs and dials" become available from Microsoft. Hope this helps!
