Have you ever asked yourself that question?
A lot of time is spent trying to figure out how to get people to use SharePoint. But what happens if you actually succeed? What will you do if you get every single person in the company to use SharePoint, to actively start creating content? Are you ready for that?
If you’re battling to figure out how to manage SharePoint, try working backwards.
Pretend that you have 100% adoption – what will that look like?
Do you have people and processes in place to support the deluge of queries that will come in? Enough space on the platform? Dormancy policies in place? What if you decide to upgrade to a new version of SharePoint? Or need to do maintenance and take it down? Do you have the communication channels in place to get to the entire user base effectively? What happens if your users get smarter than you on SharePoint? What’s your strategy around that? What if the whole platform falls over? How fast can you get it back up, how will you explain this to business and regain the trust in the platform that will be destroyed in one second?
If you answer these questions you might get a different perspective on managing SharePoint.
