It is difficult to think of any collection of people or type of activity that is not underpinned in some way by a system of governance. There seems to be a basic human condition that craves structures for the organisation and management of our collective affairs.
The purpose seems to be to provide the rules by which participants (citizens, employees, players) can conduct ourselves, as well as a higher authority to which we can refer for guidance or redress.
Unfortunately, little thought is ever given to such ideas when it comes to the activities of Website Management.
In fact, many firms continue to to believe that the only governance they need is a part-time ‘web guy’ who will take care of everything.
