Create an effective governance structure for Social Media and Sharepoint

Social Media is now a mainstream communications channel. Sharepoint is also a widely used colloboration and information sharing tool for organisations. We have launched toolkits which help organisations to put a framework in place to reduce risk and get the most of of these new technologies:


Social Media Governance Toolkit

Eight out of 10 UK businesses expect to increase their budget in social media activity!

The ITG Social Media Governance toolkit help organisations to create an effective governance structure around their social media activies. Social media is, for many organisations, a critical part of how they speak to customers, partners and stakeholders; for others, social media are a dangerous distraction.

The ITG Social Media Governance Toolkit contains a comprehensive suite of documents and templates that will help you develop, implement, monitor and improve social media activities across your organisation.

The documents in this Social Media Governance Toolkit fall into three groups:

  1. Documents for creating a social media governance framework, including a comprehensive social media policy that draws on established best practice and can be adapted for almost any circumstances, plus roles & responsibilities, communications & training, and metrics & monitoring;
  2. Documents that help embed crucial controls around social media, including an acceptable use agreement, template for legal guidance, branding & corporate style guide;
  3. Operational Guidelines that set out best practice for social media activity, including guidelines for internet postings, blogging, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.

Improve Social Media Effectiveness while reducing risk

The templates and guidance in this toolkit should help an organisation create an appropriate social media governance framework. It will help organisations identify appropriate social media objectives, as well as assign roles and responsibilities.

SharePoint Governance Toolkit

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) is an immensely useful colloboration and information sharing tool for organisations, teams and workgroups. Poorly governed SharePoint deployments can create significant holes in organisational information structures as well as exposing the organisation and its information to a wide range of risks.

The ITG SharePoint Governance Toolkit contains a comprehensive suite of documents and templates that will help you implement and maintain an effective and secure SharePoint service in your organisation. This toolkit is applicable in all SharePoint environments – MOSS 2007, MOSS 2010 – and the toolkit contents draw on a wide range of established best practice, including Microsoft guidance.
