I think policies should be linked to the building block of the IT city plan. Just like, city planner enforces certain polices and standards for a particular area (e.g. residential complex, manufacturing complex etc) , similarily , we need to enforce policies at the building blocks/ cluster level. Let me give you an example, if I have to setup some policies for the ECM (Enterprise Content Management) system, then I will have different policies for "creating contents" vs "publishing contents". Different capabilities are needed for "creating contents" vs "publishing contents" and hence different policies. You will also need different set of standards for "creating contents" vs "publishing contents".. you may would like to use FileNet for creating contents but probably would like to use Adobe or MIcorosft Word/Outlook for publishing contents.
