Implementing a successful SharePoint solution involves answering many complex questions, but have you answered the simple questions first?

Throughout his 20 year consulting career, Chris has been aligning the appropriate solution to business need. As you would expect, this has involved a large variety of methodologies and technologies (including SharePoint). From personal experience and that of his professional network, he has found that the most successful solutions have appropriately answered a few seemingly simple questions.

In the session, Chris will navigate the participants through the distillation process from the complex questions that can distract, to the simple ones that drive business value. Using real-world examples, and a non-prescriptive set of guidelines, he’ll provide some insight as to why these questions are important, where to find the answers, and how they apply to the components of SharePoint.

This broad-based, non-technical session will appeal to an audience from the Business user with minimal understanding of SharePoint to the SharePoint architect who is looking to replicate future success.
