11 Steps to SharePoint User Adoption Bliss

11 Steps to SharePoint User Adoption Bliss

There are several reasons the majority of companies that purchase Microsoft SharePoint aren’t successful, but at the crux of all of those reasons is that most of the work must be done before a single person uses SharePoint.

Successfully deploying SharePoint – and getting people to actually use it – requires 11 steps to do it right the first time.

Pink, blue, purple blissful sky frames the sun falling into the ocean closing out another day in Hawaii.  My “backyard” at Shark Pit Beach in Maui never disappoints.  It has been almost a year since I’ve moved to Maui and I couldn’t be happier.  I travel a ton for our Content Panda business and every time I come back to Maui I have that feeling of truly being “home”.  I have been bowled over by my acceptance into our Hawaii SharePoint community.

New Hire On-Boarding Tips and Tricks Using Content Panda

Many companies have terrific on-boarding programs, some do not. Your on-boarding or new employee orientation (NEO) starts before the employee walks through the door. It starts at your website and your careers page and it ends at your new employee sitting down for their first task at hand. New hires must understand your vision and values and be able to use the technology that your company has invested in to create a collaborative, productive environment from day 0 or you are wasting time and money.
