Engaging and Encouraging Your Community to Utilize Microsoft SharePoint’s Powerful Capabilities
SharePoint’s flexibility is its greatest strength and its greatest weakness. The capabilities of SharePoint far exceed those users are accustomed to receiving in a software solution, but may require that they become expert ‘configurators.’ Given this, when they are first exposed to SharePoint your users may feel intimidated by its complexity and frustrated by cryptic menus and configurable options. The power comes in the user’s ability to build lite applications with SharePoint that address their specific business needs.
Education, communication, executive involvement, incentives, frequent updates, culture development, integration and a few other best practices can help increase your organization's adoption of this valuable tool, ultimately driving efficiencies and saving time and money.
