Adoption & Effective Use

User Adoption Strategies for SharePoint: What's Effective? (April 27, 2010)

On April 27, I’m presenting on user adoption within SharePoint at the next Christchurch SharePoint User Group meeting.

What’s the number one complaint from people charged with the implementation of new collaboration tools? They do the work, and then no one uses them! The very people whom the new tools are intended to help, empower, enable, and enhance ultimately reject the new tools and don’t use them. That’s not a good outcome!

In this session, Michael outlines key strategies that can be used to encourage user adoption of SharePoint for collaboration, based on SharePoint Roadmap for Collaboration. This baseline is then extended with a discussion of Michael’s recent global survey on the use and effectiveness of user adoption strategies for SharePoint. Interestingly, the most commonly used user adoption strategies are NOT the most effective, so come and learn how to maximise your user adoption strategy.
