Why you should govern content

When you govern content, you bring together the right people and expertise and assign accountability and ownership.

Use content governance to:

  • clarify who does what, when, how, why and where
  • deliver on the goals of your content strategy
  • meet government requirements for content
  • apply standards and checks to ensure quality
  • continuously maintain and improve content

When to govern content

You should govern content at every stage of the content’s lifecycle from planning through to removing.
