The 7 Deadly Sins of SharePoint: Planning Successful Implementations and Avoiding Project Failure

A session at Charlotte SharePoint Saturday

Saturday 17th September, 2016

11:15am to 12:15pm (EST)

More than 60% of SharePoint projects are stalled, struggling, or failing, according to research conducted by the Association for Information and Image Management. If the goal is enterprise collaboration, it matters most how people connect and remain engaged, not simply how products and platforms function.

This session takes off the gloves and delivers an open discussion of why SharePoint and collaboration projects fail - and how to successfully recover. Better yet, you will learn how to set yourself up for success from the start! Join this session if your organization is contemplating a new project leveraging SharePoint, migrating to a new version of SharePoint, or needs to recover from a problematic implementation.

In addition, the presenter share 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.

Benefit Statement: Most conferences and sessions focus on features and functionality and “Getting the most out of SharePoint.” This session deals with the issue of project failure head-on and gives simple, practical, and proven techniques for preventing project failure and rescuing projects that are not performing or meeting objectives.
