Differences between SharePoint and Project Server 2007
Enabling Team Participation
Better Project Productivity
Your current environment is probably:
Quick pace of change
Time frames shorter
Less project resources – Bandwidth
For the Project Manager
Too much cutting a pasting of information
A confusion of being busy and being productive
Constant state of ‘putting out fires’
For the project they are the point contact, therefore they are CC on everything
They are accountable for the project, but not the resources.
Challenge when they reside in a different location and time zone.
Live and mostly die on Google desktop search.
The project plan looked good on paper.
The project is late:
Delivery dates being moved
Constant changes to information
How much time do you spend a day cutting, pasting, moving information?
Average 30 minutes a day finding information
Reading and responding to emails 2 hrs
Conference calls 1hr
At desk 2hrs.
Moving emails to a folder 3 minutes
Inflow of the information, is not just a Word document.
Drag and drop features
Off Line documents
Structure the flow of the information:
Structure the timeliness of the information flow
Understand how a project works?
What information is involved?
IT Department Internal Customer Project:- Great Plain upgrade
Pain Points Spends a lot of time in meetings, reporting to senior management Too many emails, which are unrelated to him Not always 100% up to date on the project status or workload of team His desire Wants project related information structured and searchable. Less clicks to find information Solution :SharePoint integrating with Outlook and one place to look
Pain Points Spread on many projects Too many emails, asking for information His desire Wants users to have more visibility to the projects Less clicks to find information Solution :SharePoint to share information and work with internal customers
Pain Points Spends too much time following up on projects Desire : A single place to place to get information Know who’s working on what Solution : SharePoint as the presentation layer
Bottom line:- Create an extra 30 minutes a day for yourself
Better personal, team and client facing performance
What would you do with an extra 30 minutes a day?
SharePoint if implemented correctly:
Make the 6 day week 5 days.
The work ends at 6.
A feeling of in control.

SharePoint has a self service model
Do you need SharePoint for project management?
Ask yourself ‘ What is your almost certain predictable future with your organization’s projects?’
Greater demands from the business on performance
Shorter time frames
Why InterDyn? Why not internal resources?
Deploy right 1 st time
Try to do it?
Do internal resources have the availability to focus on the deployment. More than a web file storage site
Can the business wait?
This is a major win in any organization-to take your organization to the next level.
