K.I.S.S. – Keep it Simple SharePoint!

​How many times do we hear things like: it’s too complex… I just don’t get what SharePoint does… too many clicks to get to what I need… even with search I can’t find it… it’s easier to use my file share (or Outlook) and store stuff on my C drive!

The Productivity Roadshow in March (where […]

Results of Enterprise Social Survey

SOCIAL SURVEY RESULTS
(See related Blog post on the Social Intranet here).

Over the past few months, we attempted to get responses from companies and individuals around New Zealand, Australia and further afield. We wanted to determine how well “social” is being adopted and used – and what for.

These are the results. There are graphs for many […]

Why is training so important?

We invest large amounts of time, effort and cost to implement large systems and changes. Our expectations on ROI, and improvements to processes are high. Why do we then still fail to get people really using these systems? Why do staff continue doing “what they have always done”? Why won’t people get on board with the systems and changes that have been implemented to […]

Change!

​Discuss Adkar, CM Template..

C – choose and commit – change requires that you decide (make a choice) and stick to it (commit.) If you haven’t decided then don’t waste time attempting to change. Lack of commitment results in fleeting change that is here one day and gone the next. Choosing and committing are foundational to […]

Chrome – Limitations with SharePoint 2013

What doesn’t work in Chrome?
So..in some cases, organisations need to use Chrome, or another browser other than IE, due to the fact the company hasn’t yet upgraded IE…(as it is needed for other applications’ use) …or whatever reason.

SharePoint 2013 has greatly improved in BOTH cross-browser and multiple device use…however, users need to be aware of […]

How do you get more from your solution provider?

What do organisations do to get more from their Solution Provider?
My favourite discussion at the Locknote at the Melbourne event (see details below) was the one around “What should customers do to get more from their Solution Providers” – this question was also reversed to explore similar themes from the Provider side, i.e. “What should […]

Post Event Wrap Up – Sydney and Auckland 2013

Huge thanks to everyone who participated…

The NZ event kicked off with the Microsoft New Wave of Innovation Keynotes – and while this extended our reach beyond “just talking SharePoint”, I think this was well-received and gave attendees a good look at Microsoft’s roadmap. Watch the time lapse vid here to see the large crowd coming […]

ShareThePoint is now upgraded to RTM!

We were bleeding/leading edge in producing the first site in our region on SharePoint 2013 – in the BETA version. With that came bugs and issues, and lots of patience, while we endured them – so thank you to those who stuck it out with us!

​We have now upgraded to RTM (Release to Manufacture) and are […]
