Preparing for Successful Outcomes

  • Ruven Gotz


SharePoint projects are notorious for their difficulty. The seeds for a successful project are sown in the early days of the project, when you, as the project consultant, have to rapidly integrate yourself into an organization, build trust with your client stakeholders, and gather the essential information you will need to be able to deliver a successful solution. You are doing more than just listening and learning in this phase: You are educating your clients and often shaking them to their core by forcing them to rethink their approach to technology solution implementation. You push toward simplicity and maintain your focus on business outcomes rather than simply gathering lists of requirements. You do this knowing that the simpler solution is much more likely to be successful, and that it will be the foundation upon which more complex and sophisticated solutions may be built.
