What is Governance?

Trudy Robinson - Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Searching via sir Google fomds a whole miriad of 'governance' clarifications, but what does this mean for a real, hands on project.

Governance is all about pre-determining what and how you will do things.  So, if your project management methodology is Project Management by Knitting Pattern - it is predefining what the Knitting Pattern means, what is included, who will do what and when.  It is then ensuring the Project Management Knitting Pattern method is approved by the appropriate management level.
Then each project must comply with governance by making sure all the predefined steps are followed, checked, documented and signed off.

That's governance.  It's not saying that any method is better than another.  It's about saying we have decided on this standard, and here is our evidence that we abide by it.  In essence in means that there is a whole bunch of planning and documentation and evidence steps throughout the process.  It's painful and lots of people hate it - and those people think that project managers do nothing but attend meetings.

But, it's for a reason, and very valid reason.

So, try and get away with if you dare - but it will be your undoing.

Have a great day
toodles

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content
as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

I really like the knowledge you present here and can't wait
to take a look when I get home. I'm amazed at how fast your blog loaded on
my mobile .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
Anyhow, awesome site!

Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It's on a completely different topic
but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
Outstanding choice of colors!

I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have something
to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is a result of the fire displayed
in the article I read. And on this article What is Governance?.
I was excited enough to post a thought :-P I do
have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be simply me or do some of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I'd like to follow
you. Would you list the complete urls of all your communal pages like your twitter feed,
Facebook page or linkedin profile?

The last essential plugin you should download for
your blog is Go - Stats. When you first set up and begin your blog, you'll be
asked if you want to add some of the widget selections that
go within your blog's sidebar.
