Access governance and management is best implemented through the introduction of Role Based Access Control (RBAC).

I would refer to the SANS websites for information about governance and best practices.

http://www.sans.edu/research/security-laboratory/article/311
http://www.sans.org/reading-room/whitepapers/bestprac

I found a presentation that might help you see RBAC being introduced into a complex environment.

Also have a look at Identity and Access Management article information for better understanding of what's options you have available for governance and access management.

I will say delve into identity access management as a whole which covers the full identity lifecycle from its creation, usage, removal and oversight. A good kickstart is the GRC ecosystem which ISACA has established couple of article and publication too. maybe check this out for a start which include references that helps the understanding and planning to implementation an IAM program

http://www.isaca.org/Journal/Past-Issues/2011/Volume-5/Pages/The-Impact-of-Governance-on-Identity-Management-Programs.aspx 

Also we can tap on Gartner as well since they are also watching this space with even recommended reading (need registration)

Sometimes, I may also look at MNC in this space actively pushing the practical side to deploy and operationalise the strategy. We should stay practical and map solution to just purely paper talk, and bonus is how it comply with standard and regulation e.g. PCI, SOX, etc
