Don’t Worry! Your Project can be saved!
SharePoint is a fantastic product, BUT:
Only 11% of Projects are Successful
(AIIM Industry Watch)
SharePoint isn’t the Problem
“less than 8% - are considering replacement with an alternative product, and only 1% have actually done so.” *
Most Projects are Built 3 Times
Failed Projects/Site Collections are Routinely DELETED and rebuilt TWICE before they are “Adopted or Accepted”.
Common Reasons for Failure
Fortunately, thanks in no small part to exhaustive surveys by AIIM.org, the root causes of SharePoint project failures are well-known. The major factors are always:
No Clear Goals or Scope
Not Enough Planning
Inadequate User Training
To avoid failure you need a proven process that insures that each requirement is met.
