You may remember Joel Oleson, who until recently was a Technical Product Manager with the SharePoint Product Team at Microsoft. 

Joel has moved on to other ventures, but he is continuing his great blogging efforts about SharePoint.  Visit his new blog at http://www.sharepointjoel.com

One of the topics that Joel Oleson has visited our NorthWest District for is SharePoint Governance.  Joel has published a new slide deck covering Governance.  If you’ve been in one of his (or my cheap knock off) presentations on Governance, then you will recognize some of the slides. 

Review Joel’s blog entry and grab the slide deck from here: http://www.sharepointjoel.com/archive/2008/04/21/sharepoint-governance-and-burton-group-workshop.aspx

(Clarification:  Because my job role focuses on the Microsoft Northwest District, sometimes I'll address those customers when writing these posts...  Hence the "You may remember..." at the top of this post.)
