Governance 2.0

I pulled out two staggeringly clear paragraphs that sum up governance.

“”Governance” is what information management is mostly all about. Information management is the process by which those who set policy guide those who follow policy. Governance concerns power, and applying an understanding of the distribution and sharing of power to the management of information technologies”

Governance may include “centralized” power, but traditional push-down models of architecture and standards only provide part of the solution. Implemented the wrong way, they hamper innovation and agility. We need standards for some stuff, or we can’t be agile or innovative – we’re always fighting fires. With a foundation of standards, we can distribute power and empower a community to be far more productive.
