Having been involved in various government and private SharePoint-related projects, an issue that often arise is the lack of buy-in and long term commitment from decision makers.
A key factor I found is often decision makers’ limited understanding of the platform benefits versus the obstacles for successful implementation. It is imperative that executives have the full scope of how these technologies can be fully maximized for their organizations and be aware of technical and organizational change issues.
To address this, I’m excited to let you know that on Oct 8, 2010, we’re hosting “Executive Insights: How Three DC Organizations Achieved Work Management Success” – a breakfast roundtable for executives/decision makers at the Ritz-Carlton in Mclean, VA.
By attending this event, decision makers will gain deeper insights into how SharePoint and Microsoft Project can help your organization deliver successful work management solutions, including team collaboration, business process automation, project management and executive reporting.
We will hear from three Washington, DC-based organizations on how they achieved work management success, namely:
– DoD/VA: BPR and Improved Healthcare Outcomes
– VGT: Delivering QA Process Improvement and Savings
– SI: Healing a Case of Ineffective Process, Document & Project Management
In addition, Arpan Shah, Director of Microsoft® Project and former Director of the SharePoint Technical Product Management team, will kick off the meeting. Industry thought leader and educator specializing in SharePoint, Bill English will present “Top 10 Best Practices to Achieve SharePoint Success”.
