So I had all the technical how to books, and some of them covered some governance and planning, but I was left wanting more. I hoped this book would fill in the gaps and it did.The biggest problem I have run into with SharePoint is that there is not enough planning and governance surrounding the use of it. I have been in a lot of environments that started their SharePoint initiatives with a plan that was no more that "Hey why don't we throw SharePoint up and see what it can do". Suddenly those curious individuals are using it to share documents. The word slowly spreads that it is available and more users start using it.Then one of the more curious power users (by the way, most of the time in my experience `power user' = `dangerous user') start adding more features and they begin to start using more of the web parts and services available.Next someone realizes you can integrate SharePoint with Reporting Services and they start down the BI road. Before you know it they have a monster on their hands and start looking for someone to clean it up and help manage it, but the cowboys who kicked it all off have moved on!!!!That story has been the same story for every single SharePoint environment I have come across, and I have come across a lot of them.I could have summed all that up with the statement "READ THIS BOOK BEFORE IMPLEMENTING A SHAREPOINT ENVIRONMENT", but I wanted to give some context to the importance of understanding how planning and governance can impact your SharePoint environment. It is a beast, especially SharePoint 2010.The book is broken down into 3 sections. They are Planning, Optimizing, and Migrating. Some of the topics I found really useful where Why Is Governance Planning So Important?
