Within the Enterprise 2.0 Implementation Framework above, governance is an absolutely critical and central issue, as I have written about many times before. I have included the chapter on governance because it is so central both to implementing Enterprise 2.0, and to generating business value in a fast-paced environment. Change entails risk and opportunity – governance provides a structure to enable this.

Chapter 4 on Key Risks and Benefits , also available as a free download, examines the risks and benefits that must be considered in the governance process.

The Governance chapter contains:

* Conceptual illustration of social networks in the enterprise (see as a standalone image)

* The importance of the governance

* Six steps in a typical governance process

* Worksheet on stakeholder interests

* Professional service firm case study

You can also just download the pdf of Chapter 7.
