SharePoint : The need for a governance plan

According to Microsoft : "Governance is the set of policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that you establish in your enterprise to guide, direct, and control how it uses technologies to accomplish business goals."

Governance plan is critical step for any successful SharePoint deployment. The absence of such a plan may even lead to a total chaos. Since no organization wants to loose control over her information, a plan to structure this information and establish the responsibilities between users and IT professionals is unavoidable.

This has been said, the governance plan is neither meant to very limit the end-user nor to overload administrators and developers.

Where to start then?
