Content governance

Content governance describes, a set of policies that govern how an organization’s content is created and published. At the most basic level, it can help them avoid being sued or embarrassed, or both. However, when a content governance program realizes its true potential, it can revolutionize the content creation process.
The guidelines and rules applied are used even before the first content is created or published.

What are the best practices in a content governance?

  • Determine your principles and goals.
    Take time to develop your vision and the standards that will be used to track compliance and monitor the benefits to your business.
  • Classify business information.
    Organizations need to organize their information according to an existing classification system (e.g., by product, knowledge field, process, or human group) or create a custom classification that is unique to their organization.
  • Develop an education strategy.
    Companies should outline a plan for training their employees.
  • Review and revise.
    Successful content governance is an ongoing project. Companies should periodically review their plan to determine if adjustments are needed.
  • Don’t forget metrics.
    As with any other project, it is very important to establish performance metrics so that success can be measured.
