Most SharePoint Deployments Fail (>80%)
Most Projects are Discarded & Rebuilt
This has been going on for over 15 years. It's so common that JFD has developed a practice called SharePoint Interventions (SPi) to prevent project failures and cure failed implementations. (Want to learn more? Attend our next Webinar)
No matter how talented your Project Team,
odds are you are paying the price of a failed SharePoint project. Curious? We have developed a few questions that enable non-technical senior managers to quickly assess the efficiency and effectiveness of their SharePoint investments. Just ask your project team these simple questions:
Are you over budget or exceeding timelines?
Are you adding expensive 3rd party products?
Are architectural changes being made during the build?
How well does SharePoint Search work for finding documents?
Is the Intranet easy to navigate?
Do they know the rate of employee adoption...why not?
The answers to these questions will immediately reveal the "health" of your investment, identify its underlying issues and the steps required to cure the situation. (Want to learn more? Attend our next Webinar, start a “Chat” or contact us.)
SharePoint Interventions - Prevention
Industry associations have conducted multiple surveys to determine the root causes of SharePoint project failures. Essentially they result from failures in:
Establishing clear, detailed Goal and Scope statements
Planning a structure that attains the Goals within the Scope
Training the users
Contact us about our 8 step process that guarantees achieving a successful project the first time.
SharePoint Interventions - The Cure
Most failed projects are discarded and then rebuilt from scratch! Don't discard your build! We have a process for curing failed projects that includes:
Training the Project Team in SharePoint
Creating a detailed Goal and Scope specification
Creating a Site Collection Blueprint that supports the Goals within the Scope
Using the SharePoint “Content & Structure” function to rearrange the current Site Collection into the new structure
Using PowerShell commands to reset permissions
SharePoint Interventions - "Migration Prep"
Migrating to the "Cloud" represents a prime opportunity to improve your Intranet by first removing the ROT (Redundant, Outdated and Trivial). Migration offers additional opportunities to:
Reorganize bloated Libraries
Remove or consolidate unused Sites
Reorganize Sites to simplify navigation and permissions.
Remove incompatible 3rd-Party add-ons and custom code.
Reduce monthly costs with a "slimmer" intranet.
