Governance footprints and frameworks of organizations are, in part, a manifestation of the type of actors and styles of governance that they adopt and apply. As organizations begin the process of collaborating with other organizations, and as individuals are assigned to represent those organizations within the collaborative space, the capacity and ability of any individual or single organization to impose their favored governance style on the collaboration is lessened. In other words, the overall control from any one organization is diluted or made diffuse.
