WisDOT SharePoint Service Support - Best Practices

WisDOT Best Practices in SharePoint Content Management

Content management encompasses several key components in maintaining an effective SharePoint environment. It is a strategic part of SharePoint Governance, and it addresses the steps SharePoint users need to follow in planning, organizing, and maintaining the content stored on their SharePoint site.

Content Management addresses content-related questions such as: Who are the users (contributors) of the content? Which content should be moved to SharePoint and how is it moved? What is the disposition (lifecycle) of the content? Who will own the content? How will the content be organized on SharePoint? Are there workflows associated with the content?
