I’m thrilled to be headed to St. Louis, MO in a couple of weeks to speak at SharePoint Saturday St. Louis. There’s a great speaker lineup for the January 20, 2018 event, including sessions from Daniel Glenn, Brian Caauwe, Max Fritz, Mark Rackley, Stephanie Donahue, Becky Bertram, Robert Bogue, Erica Toelle, Nate Chamberlain and many more. I’ll be presenting two sessions at the event:
- Why is defining ROI for SharePoint/Office 365 so hard?
ROI is a “fancy” acronym for Return on Investment. While ROI implies success, it usually involves mysterious mathematical formulas that many people can’t see or understand. So how does an everyday SharePoint business owner tackle the ROI puzzle? Do you just “flip the switch” on your implementation and move on? Or are you so busy with post-launch support that you don’t have time to circle back and quantify your results? This session will help you demonstrate the business value for your SharePoint implementation. We’ll examine common ROI calculation methodologies while providing strategies for identifying your ROI niche and quantifying the business value of your SharePoint implementation.
- When cookie-cutter user adoption doesn’t cut it
Most of us learn from others. We look for leaders in a given field, learn how they do things and try to replicate their formula for success. This approach seems logical, doesn’t it? Identify, learn and replicate. Unfortunately, user adoption isn’t a cookie-cutter exercise. Attempts to take good Collaboration ideas (ideas that drive effective governance and successful user adoption) and re-use them often fail. In this session, we’ll examine why reused ideas and solutions often fail and offer practical ideas for overcoming this re-use barrier. We’ll also discuss our real-life experience integrating innovative governance and user adoption strategies across companies. You’ll learn how to examine your users, your culture and your Collaboration goals so you can tailor others’ solutions to meet your needs.
If you’ll be in the St. Louis area on January 20th and want to learn more about SharePoint and Office 365, don’t miss your chance to register for this free event.
