Overview: best practices for managing how people use your team site

If you’re a team site owner, it’s a good idea to create a governance model – that is, a model to address your site’s policies, processes, roles, and responsibilities. A model like this will help you control how people use your site. For example, you might want to require check-out of files so that multiple people don’t try to edit a file at the same time. Or, you may want to allow only certain people to create subsites. This article gives an overview of ideas and best practices to think about when creating such a model.
