What is SharePoint's role and how do you get there?...

SharePoint's versatility makes it the ideal tool for managing a wide range of information, knowledge and business processes. This iLab will give you the thinking, tools and checklists to help you develop short, medium and long term plans to harness SharePoint and stop it getting out of control.

Just starting out? Time for a review or make-over?

The iLab is based on our consulting experience with over sixty SharePoint implementations. At the workshop you'll be able to translate our ideas into actions, principles and decisions that will drive your implementation forward and keep it focused on what the business values

Each module covered looks at why the aspect is important, key ideas, as well as common traps. You'll have the chance to relate this to your organisation and start building and refining your strategy and roadmap, as the iLab progresses

icon arrow OBJECTIVES:

Put SharePoint on the corporate radar... a powerful new way of improving business information flows and availability. This makes your project easier to fund and implement and key people clearly get how it is relevent to their business priorities

Make SharePoint really valued and business focused
Staff love using it and everyone sees the improvement value it brings

Use our Decision DNA to ask and answer the vital questions:



Actions now are aligned to a solid future

With a roadmap, you can ensure that decisions that are being made today are also in the best medium-long term interests of your organisation

Choose the most appropriate approaches

Every organisation is different. This iLab will help you make informed choices about your approach to infrastructure, information architecture, governance, change management and implementation. This includes technology guidance on what is available "out of the box" versus via extending SharePoint and software development

Cover all the bases - save money & hassle

Put money and your time where it is best need. Avoid unnecessary internal dissonance, custom software development and technical/architecture miss-steps. Don't overlook decisions that have little impact now but a significant impact as your implementation matures
