SOA Governance by Todd Biske is surprisingly an easy read that explains what is governance and what does it mean in an SOA setting. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this wonderfully well written book about SOA governance.
Todd's view of SOA Governance is outcome, rather than product, centric. As the tale unfolds, he points out problem areas, suggests corrective action and supplies best practices. Exhibiting good SOA form, the book is easily consumed and right-sized.

SOA Governance is the key to a successful adoption of Service-Oriented Architecture. It is the process of establishing a desired outcome for your efforts, and then leveraging people, policies, and processes to make that outcome a reality. This includes technical policies and standards that guide your design-time activities, policies and processes that impact your project selection and funding decisions, and finally run-time policies that impact your operational management activities. The adoption of Service-Oriented Architecture is intended to improve the efficiency and productivity of your company, and your SOA governance efforts are critical in achieving your goals in quality, consistency, predictability, change management, and interdependencies of services.
This book will help you to understand what requirements you will need to introduce SOA Governance into your company. Running through the people, policies, and processes needed for such an effort, this book will help you to realize the steps that you need to take in order to improve your company's business process quickly and efficiently.

You will learn how to plan SOA governance according to your company's needs, so that you can avoid the possible pitfalls that are highlighted through the narrative.

The key to successful SOA adoption in your organization
Follow the IT management of Advasco, a fictitious financial corporation, through their journey of implementing SOA Governance into their company. Each chapter will provide a narrative of how their efforts towards SOA adoption are faring and the obstacles that they face. The second half of each chapter explains the situations that arose for Advasco, along with the role that SOA Governance played in the scenario, either through the lack of it, or through the successful application of people, policies, and processes.
By seeing the journey made in the realistic example, you will be able to understand exactly what is involved in the process of SOA governance and be able to avoid the pitfalls that Advasco encountered along the way. With an in-depth analysis of the progress made and the tools that were used to get there, you will learn how to improve your company's efficiency and productivity using service-oriented architecture governance.
