Presented by Christian Buckley of Axceler.
One of the biggest mistakes made during environment migrations is to make this a dev or administrator activity, and not involve the end users – who know the data and business needs better than anyone. The purpose of this session is to outline a structured migration plan, and illustrate where and how end users should be involved in the process. Attendees will walk away with ideas on how they can improve their migration planning, ensuring the new environment includes direct input from their end users, which will increase adoption rates and improve SharePoint effectiveness.
The session is positioned to the Admins and IT Pros who own the SharePoint deployment, but is also a great session for PMs and Business Analysts who play a part in planning. Not involving end users in the planning and design of a SharePoint environment is a huge mistake. This session provides a roadmap for including end users – when and how. Audience level is 100-200, with strong emphasis on project management and governance.
