  • Not understanding exactly what challenges or opportunities that SharePoint will address in your organization is by far the biggest cause of failureWithout knowing WHAT you will use sharepoint for, how it will help your organization over come its challenges, you are dooming yourself from day one
  • Essentially there is a lot of confusion around what SharePoint is, even Mr Balmer has resorted to talking in magicToo many organizations cant articulate what SharePoint will be in their organization like Mr BalmerIn much the same way that if you cant articulate what an “Intranet”, “Collaboration” or “Social” will be in the context of your organization you will resort to “magic”
  • We have all seen the product pies and wheels and crap about what SharePoint is but what actually is it?Sharepoint is like application Lego an organization, It comes with pieces that you can use to craft solutions that are specific to your organizationThe confusion lies in how its implemented and marketed – yes it does things out of the box but like a Lego brick is only a Lego brick it will only become powerful once features are put together to create walls, or solutions or IntranetsIn the same way as you don’t need to solve everything with your Intranet you don’t need to solve everything with SharePoint
  • The biggest issue with SharePoint is not understanding that you are embarking on a change management initative supported by softwareBefore you install or hire consultants take a look at your organizationThe HOW is, surprisingly the easy part, look at the WHAT, WHY and WHEN
  • You get what has been happening out there in the industry – some successes but also lots of failuresScope Creep:Inevitable when you have a product and platform as broad as SharePointNot understanding and articulating what challenges you will solve will lead to divergence and failureExpectations10 people in a room all think what this thing called SharePoint is different you will failedITAs IT people, and usually we are, we go back to our safe spot – servers, memory, bits and bytes
  • Intranet and CollaborationDon’t scope in Collaboration unless you are very sure you know what this means to your organizationCollaboration isn’t about rolling out team sites, it requires a far bigger understanding of what you are doing, how you are doing it…Cheap and EasyUltimate double edged swordThe power of sharepoint is in its breadth as opposed to depth so be carefulBoiling the oceanDoing everything because you can isn’t the best wayIdentify those things that will provide you the most value and concentrate on them first
  • Sharepoint is unique in the complete destruction or joy it can bring to an organizationOffice/SAPTell your IT people that just because its made by MS doesn’t mean that its deployed in the same wayIT resonates with IT people because no one would this of deploying SAP by installing it, pressing next and saying we are good to go
  • There really is no secret to successful SharePoint intranets, no big ones anyway, its simply a lot of little things done right
