I think we can all agree that any technology deployment works best when it is aligned with real business value. This has been demonstrated by the willingness of companies to invest millions in ERP systems, recognizing that although the implementation and configuration of an ERP is a painful process, the outcome of having better inventory, supply chain and financial management is a necessity for running a business. Similarly, business have come to rely on the vast array of desktop software, most notably MS-Office, as genuine productivity tools.

But what about the gulf in the middle, between the enterprise and the desktop? What about department level workflow, document sharing, social networking in the workplace, and automated services for internal employees? Is there genuine business value there? And is SharePoint 2010 really the first “ready for primetime” platform that can deliver on the third leg of an enterprise IT strategy, bridging the gulf between the enterprise and the desktop?

This presentation will explore the alignment between the capabilities of SharePoint 2010 and real business needs for team, department and enterprise –level collaboration, use real world examples of best practices for developing a roadmap for success, and explore the non-technical factors that have the potential to make or break the success of collaboration within your enterprise.

  • 1. The New World of Collaboration It’s nice to share, or is it...? Bob Kreha, PMP BrightStreet Group, USA
  • 2. Agenda • What I’ve been doing lately • Collaboration as a “hot topic” – how we got here • Now what - strategies for providing an environment conducive to collaboration • Open Discussion

  • 9. The “Who Cares” slide! Virtual workers Worker stratification (contractors, vendors, partners, etc.) Aging workforce Attachment hell and Outlook as your corporate document mgmt system • You can’t search for what isn’t there… • • • •
  • 10. A user’s perspective · My personal “Collaboration site” is ALWAYS full – if we are suppose to store documents there, give us more space (especially for mobile workers) · It seems to be the solution for everything – create a Collaboration Site, put it on Collaboration site, etc. People just roll their eyes when someone says this. · Shared / team sites seem to become “dumping” grounds, and never kept up-to-date. · User learning opportunity – with team sites, nobody puts anything out there, but still just sends emails with attachments, etc. instead of posting on “Collaboration site” to share with others · Rarely are the sites used to their full capacity – calendars, to do lists, etc. · It’s almost more of a chore to put things on “Collaboration site” (another learning opportunity for us) · User fear – it appears to be very overwhelming; especially when it’s MANDATED that you switch to “Collaboration site”, and you just have to learn it. (yes, we had classes but I didn’t attend, and I’m guessing most people didn’t – unless they were one of the people who were deemed “Collaboration site” expert for the team) · Understand that there will be different levels of user needs – marketing / communications could probably utilize the calendars, forms, etc. while another group simply does just need it as an archival spot for documents. · It’s frustrating when you are trying to save to your Collaboration site, for example from Excel, and it lets you do it one time, but then won’t let you another time. Fickle.
