"An Incomplete Governance Plan is as if a firm has no Governance at all"
Dave Hall, CDO SharemarQ
Governance is a part of everything you do within an organization. For example, a typical corporate governance plan defines roles and responsibilities, levels of accountability, processes and systems, and rules for how employees work together. Those general governance principles also apply to productivity tools like Office 365, and so you should develop and implement an Office 365 governance plan.
Our Governance Plan
We have over 12+ years in working with firms like yours in establishing the guard rails and boundaries for the implementation of O365.
We work with you by asking the questions you may not know you should be asking.
Ideally, together we have the opportunity to help flush out the guidelines and configurations you before you launch O365 across your organization. But, SharemarQ engages at any stage of your release of O365 providing you tools to launch O365 and empower your employees.
We kick off 6 weeks of working sessions to address each of the 13 Governance topics to be addressed assuring you at the end you have a "Working" Governance Plan meeting your firms immediate and long term needs.
Twelve (12) working sessions are comprised of 2 hours workshop once a week over a six weeks period with selected business teams in your firm. This minimizes the impact to day-to-day operations but engages the right business teams in the areas they are most accountable and responsible for.
