In mid-April, I’ll be in Atlanta to speak at and participate in the inaugural Share 2012 conference in the US. I will be presenting two sessions:
- Keynote on April 25, entitled Success with SharePoint: Earning the Right to Seek Executive Support. Many IT departments have installed SharePoint and are now wondering how to make the technology deliver business value. A quick answer is often to seek executive support, but before rushing to do so, there are a number of critical disciplines that need to be put in place to earn the right for making this approach.
- Post-Conference Workshop on April 26, on Strategies for User Adoption. This workshop provides a forum for learning and engagement about encouraging user adoption. User adoption has always been the number-one challenge for new collaboration tools, and the emergence of SharePoint has increased the adoption challenge. With SharePoint being home to many capabilities such as, document management, team sites, social collaboration, and business intelligence, etc., how do you approach the challenge of gaining adoption to ensure the achievement of the desired business value?
I’ve attended the two previous Share conferences in Australia, and they have been excellent. The Eventful Group—the conference producers—do a great job of creating an event that brings people together, gets great information shared, and builds community. I can’t recommend Share 2012 in Atlanta highly enough.
