@ChrisWeiss The CoE Charter Template PPT has the Governance Structure - Centralized or Federated, as step 8 of the process.  However, in the "Introduction to Centers of Excellence" link above, it says establish governing body and establish governance as part of Phase 1: Foundations and establish central responsibilities as part of Phase 2: Centralize.  Are those different than choosing the Governance Structure?


Also, "Selecting Center of Excellence Governance Structure" has the CoE steps: Define Governance Structure then Identify Location of Key Participants and then Recurring Meetings.  However, the CoE Charter Template PPT has a different order: Identify Location of Key Participants, Recurring Meetings, and Define Governance Structure. 


Can you please clarify? Thank you!

Excellent consultation and very structure!
