Managing the implementation of SharePoint is a comprehensive task; one which requires strong project management skills, a detailed project plan, and creativity. Inefficient communication among stakeholders, poor document management practices, and undefined project collaboration standards can compromise project success. This session will walk through effective planning techniques and implementation standards for a SharePoint implementation from the perspective of a Project Manager. We will discuss how to create and customize a SharePoint site for effective project collaboration and monitoring as well as analyzing the project schedule and milestones in a SharePoint site, generate on-demand project status reports and how to synchronize common project management tools with SharePoint.

You will learn:

  • Break-down of SharePoint's workloads and modules into workable components
  • Planning techniques for teams and stakeholders
  • Collaboration and monitoring policies for effective implementation
