  • A strategy is a plan of action designed to achieve a vision (or objectives).What is our winningcondition for SharePoint? What is the objective?
  • Because TV is always true.
  • Have you seen the new DirectTV commercials? No? Then you too are probably working too late and don’t watch enough TV. :P
  • “When you don’t know where you are going any road will get you there.” – Lewis Carroll
  • You take the estimated value and divide that by the estimated level of difficulty then times (*) it by 100 to get the percentage of ROI.
  • They need to understand both the value and the difficulty for each objective – which can only be achieved when objectives are specific enough and prioritized.
  • Just like in our IT projects it wasn’t really one launch due to the complexity. It was multiple launches to get us on the right trajectory towards our goal/objectives.
  • If you think dealing with Attorneys and users is a challenge imagine having to plan for hard Martian soil, extreme temperatures and storms.
  • Even after reaching our destination there is still the hard work of gathering the data. Then the hard work of verifying and validating the data.
  • Look at launch and the initial 3 months worth of missions compares to the number they actually had!
  • It’s critical to understand the importance of not just launch, but the mini launches that adjust our trajectory, and the travel and importance of communication, and finally the landing and it’s importance.
  • A strategy must specify what action will happen in each contingent state… e.g. if the opponent does A, then take action B, whereas if the opponent does C, take action D.
  • Why are we using SharePoint within our Enterprise?What are we currentlyusing SharePoint for within our Enterprise?What are the future uses for SharePoint within our Enterprise?How is SharePoint helping us achieve our business goals?What are our SharePoint objectives and their priority?What are our SharePoint initiatives and their priority?How do our SharePoint initiatives align with our SharePoint objectives?What are ways we can reduce inefficiencies and duplication?What groups are doing similar initiatives and how can we help?What are the related systems, applications and services we have within our enterprise?How is the business prioritizing SharePoint initiatives?Who are the people or key areas of the business involved in setting the strategic direction for our SharePoint implementation? What areas of the business offer the most opportunity for growth?How are you communicating strategic changes or initiatives related to SharePoint in your organization?
  • What are the known current SharePoint Initiatives?What are the known future SharePoint initiatives?Am I using all the features our organization is paying for?Are we using any of the features incorrectly?What are the related business applicationsandservices?Do any contain duplicate features/functionality?Are any being retired/eliminated in the future?What are the technical objectives for SharePoint within the organization?How are these technical objectives prioritized?What are our current and future licensing plans with SharePoint?Do you have a communication plan?When do communications occur?What must the communications contain?Who are the contacts for key responsibilities?
  • Document management roles. Firms should ensure that the planning process incorporates feedback of key stakeholders, that the right team is in place to implement the solution, and that stakeholders who will participate in document management processes are identified. Document usage. After firms classify who works on documents, they should determine the types of documents that practitioners work on and how those documents are used. Document organization. Firms should plan how to organize documents into site collections, sites, libraries, folders, and subfolders; when to use to loosely structured document libraries for quick document creation and collaboration; and when to use a Records Center for long-term storage. Content types. Firms should classify and rationalize the wide array of content types currently in use across their various practices. This part of the planning process is an essential step in organizing documents and enforcing consistency across the firm. Workflows. Firms should plan how documents will move from one practitioner to another as people collaborate. Establishing and codifying several baseline document workflows enables firms to embed best practices, reduce risk, and increase efficiencies.
  • How are you allocating costs?
  • Do you have clearly defined Governance teams, committees or boards?Are the roles and responsibilities of the membership clearly defined?Is all of the membership engaged?Does the membership rotate?How often are your members getting together?What are the reasons your Governance teams, committees or boards get together?Are the outcomes of these meetings actionable?Do you have a Governance Site (and Governance Plan)?What is within your GovernanceSite?
  • Process Details:What is the name of the process?Who are the actors of the process?What are the systems involved in the process?What are the pre-conditions for this process taking place?What are the post conditions after this process has taken place?Is the information reviewed after?How often?For what reason?How long does the process take right now?If there are outliers or exceptions to the typical duration what are the causes for this?How frequently does this process take place? (Frequency)How many times has this process taken place? (Volume) How important is that historic data? Process Deep Dive:What are the existing pain points in the process?Who owns each step? Is there a clear owner? (You can include system, or exclude a step if it’s not part of the identified flow of events, but is supplemental).When are people notified and who is notified in each step?Especially important on steps that require an action.What are the ‘exceptions’ in the process?Whenever a user declines a step in the process the workflow ends.When presented with ‘decline’ or ‘approve’ it is typically best practice to present an option for giving a comment on decline. (Or pre-defined reasons.)Does this decline have any clear pre-defined reasons?Where in the process are there escalation paths?What are these paths?What are the existing documents or artifacts used/leveraged within the process?What are the related processes?Related tasks?What is the process? (Process mapping activities.)What are the permissions and privacy considerations throughout the process?Questions:What does XYZ mean?This should always be asked even if you think you understand the acronym to ensure it’s not misinterpreted.

  • While SharePoint internal environments support a ‘mobile’ friendly mode the same feature doesn’t work for anonymous users on public facing websites. In addition to this there is the challenge of much smaller resolutions which SharePoint has not been optimized for. Even the webpages developed within SharePoint are large and according to some experts ‘bloated’ with additional content that often is not applicable for anonymous users. There are workarounds for all of these issues (and more), but most require some level of customization or code. So while optimizing SharePoint sites for mobile and tablet devices is possible, it isn’t necessarily easy.What does Microsoft currently have to say about this? “Microsoft SharePoint 2010 supports several modern, standards based, XHTML 1.0 compliant browsers such as Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3.6 and Safari 4.x as detailed in the “Plan browser support (SharePoint Server 2010)” on Microsoft TechNet. It explains in detail which features work and which do not across the browsers and is the most up to date browser support information. The mobile versions of Safari browser on the Apple iPhone OS (used by the iPhone and iPad) have not been tested by Microsoft, and there may be issues using them with SharePoint 2010.”There are quite a few documented issues (almost all of which relate to the mobile browser and the fact that SharePoint 2010 has not been designed to behave with all touch based interfaces) which are a good reason for concern when many businesses are seeing considerable growth and adoption of tablets. According to the JP Morgan Analyst Group “The tablet market is expected to grow to $35 billion by 2012”. Let me assure you that a big contributor to that growth will be enterprise customers who use SharePointWhat is the mobile experience of your SharePoint site?Have you optimized the site for smaller resolutions?What mobile browsers do you support?Is your organization adopting tablet PCs (iPads)?What is the tablet experience of your SharePoint site?What support do you provide for remote workers?What are the offline and synchronization options your organization is providing?Is SharePoint available outside of the firewall for employees?When a user receives an email linking to a SharePoint document on their phone can they download that document? What is this mobile email and SharePoint experience like?

  • Are you using custom search scopes?Are you using people search?Are you checking what queries resulted in failure (no click through or 0 results)?Are you using best bets?Have you defined synonyms?Do you allow users to search non SharePoint data from within SharePoint? If so what data?Are you using hit highlighting?Have you made organizational enhancements to the noise words file and/or the thesaurus file?Have you defragmented your search database(s)?
  • What does a one star versus a five star rating mean in your organization?What are acceptable tags?Are negative tags allowed? Are there examples of effective tags available?When should a user tag and when shouldn’t they?If content has already been tagged is it valuable to tag it again?Is it okay to tag content if that content already has a column (or metadata) value that represents that tag?Are you using Status Updates?What are acceptable status updates? Are there examples of effective status updates available?What is acceptable About Me information for a user profile? Are there examples of effective About Me descriptions available?What is an acceptable user profile picture?
  • Are you using keywords, key phrases, and a description that reflects each pages content?Are you using Robots Exclusion Standard (robots.txt)?Are you placing your content higher up in the page (to improve search engine processing).Are you ensuring alt and titletags are always filled on things like images?Are you using descriptive text in your hyperlinks?Are you using descriptive page titles?Are you automatically updating the sitemap (helps search engines crawl or discover pages on the site).Are you adjusting the Search Visibility for sites or pages you don’t want crawled?
  • A lot of this can seem daunting and I know one of the hardest things is figuring out how to do some of the things I have shown today. If you are interested in further training or assistance please let me know. Based on the number of people who are interested and the areas of interest we can schedule further training sessions to help everyone better use the SharePoint portal.It's our commitment to you that we will continue to hear your feedback and identify the issues. I encourage you to give us feedback during the coming months, and we will continue to deliver more and more functionality, more and more guidance to help you be successful with your application of SharePoint.Thank You for Reading/Listening
