SPSNYC SharePoint Adoption Tactics


Published on

SharePoint adoption is a very tricky subject. The best planned and designed SharePoint portals can fail if users don’t adopt to SharePoint. Gartner surveys say that more than 50% of SharePoint implementations fail due to poor user adoption. With millions of dollars spent each year on SharePoint deployments, this becomes quite significant. SharePoint adoption starts with proper planning, implementation and governance. In order to have sustained user engagement, new techniques like gamification are also emerging. This session will focus on all these aspects and will provide the attendees ideas and tools to implement for their SharePoint portal. Attendees will be presented with the challenges currently being faced with SharePoint deployments centered around adoption, best practices around planning and governance will be discussed, and ideas for SharePoint gamificaiton will also be presented.
