SharePoint Governance, Planning and Adoption

This three-day SharePoint Governance Training course is a comprehensive and detailed discussion about the proper techniques for deploying SharePoint by focusing on how to build and maintain proper Governance. This class begins by ensuring that each student understands what SharePoint is and the business proposition for the enterprise collaboration platform. This course is an in-depth discussion into the business case and ROI of SharePoint and how to tie SharePoint to your company vision. Class dives into Governance by teaching students the value of proper Governance planning, deployment and ongoing support. Students will define a vision for SharePoint and will work together on exercises designed to give a real-world understanding of the steps required when building the team as well as answering the critical questions.
