  • 9. #4 Underestimate Human Resources Management overlooks how broad SharePoint is and relies on existing personnel with little expertise to deliver platform and business solutions Various skillsets are needed – not just developer and or/admin Having a SharePoint business analyst is key
  • 10. #5 Failed Exec Education & Engagement Common theme among IT departments is that SharePoint doesn’t get enough executive attention and support  Executives want the benefits, but fail to make the investments that are necessary Lack of understanding of how SharePoint can deliver business value is the culprit  What are you trying to accomplish and why?  What is the value? If it is quantifiable, then half the battle is won When executives understand the Return portion of the equation, it is much easier to get them to commit to the Investment side
