Getting It Right the First Time: Project Management as the Key to Successful User Adoption

A session at SharePoint Saturday Austin

Saturday 2nd March, 2013

9:30am to 10:30am (CST)

User adoption is the most critical success factor in any SharePoint implementation. User adoption needs to be planned for from the beginning of the project, using a project management approach that integrates a strategy for user adoption best practices. These best practices ensure that the customer is involved in the process from start to finish, in a managed way, while allowing IT to focus on what they do best: design and deliver the technology. This session is for anyone involved in the planning of SharePoint projects.
