WS 406 - Cowboys versus Ninjas: A user adoption and innovation games workshop

Sarah Haase - US Bank

Driving effective user adoption for collaborative platforms like SharePoint and Office 365 is incredibly difficult. Most companies veer off-course, missing the opportunity to engage users, build internal communities and drive business engagement and value. The result: a muddle of unused SharePoint sites, negligible business buy-in and a maze of nested file repositories.

This full-day workshop explores common user adoption myths and explains the role social epidemics play in driving adoption of collaborative toolsets. You'll learn practical tips and tricks for engaging key user constituencies in your organization, learn key motivational techniques to drive technology adoption and explore how innovation games can help you drive shared understanding and build a unified vision.

By the time you complete this workshop,  you'll know how to inspire your SharePoint ninjas, channel your enthusiasts, wrangle your cowboys and work with (or around) your naysayers.
