I am on a team that will be migrating all of the content from employees individual "home" drives to SharePoint 2013 My Sites.  I see this as the perfect opportunity to implement governance to site creation, maintenance, and decommissioning from a records management / information management perspective.

I remember having a conversation several years ago with someone (don't remember who) about their practice of provisioning sites based on a small number of predefined types of sites and site architectures.  There was an understanding, within this individual's organization, that not all departments or projects have the same needs, so there wasn't a "one-size-fits-all" approach.  This seemed to me, at the time, to be a good way to implement some governance around the creation, maintenance, and decommissioning of sites.  This may be a way, too, to implement some rudimentary retention functionality without having to implement a full-blown retention schedule on all sites.  Baby steps. . .

Has anyone had experience with this approach?  If you do, please contact me off-list or on-list, whatever your preference.
