11:20am to 12:30pm
This session takes off the gloves and delivers an open discussion of why some SharePoint projects fail - and how to successfully recover. Better yet, we show you how to set yourself up for success from the start! So, if you are contemplating launching a new project leveraging SharePoint, migrating to a new version of SharePoint, or need to recover from a problematic implementation... then this is a "can't miss" session.
The session includes 3 specific, real-world cases of failed projects - and how those projects were successfully turned around to deliver a successful project with broad user adoption. In addition, the presenter will share the "7 Habits" for successful implementations and discuss "deadly sins" to avoid. He will also provide statistics on failed SharePoint projects including key reasons for project failures.
