Workplace Culture: Can You Really Change It?

Tue, September 15, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

We hear more about the importance of culture every day. As technology advances, software and connectivity grow, and open-source tools become de rigeur, it's becoming easier to find tools that can fill tricky-yet-crucial roles in our processes. We're tapping new gold mines of scalability, automation, and compute.

But with every step forward in the world of tools – and processes – and management – there's something that continues to stay exactly the same: the human nature of the tool users. The team of people on the mission, and the workplace environment they create, are foundational to everything else that's used to do our work. Culture is the primary factor.

With a strong, positive, motivated culture, more work is done. More quality is delivered. And more money can be made. But can it be improved? Can it be influenced? Can it be changed? That's the million-dollar question we'll spend the hour on during this web seminar.

SharePoint Is Not A Network Drive Replacement: Change Your Thinking About Information Categorization: Folders vs Metdata

Fri, September 18, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

Let's do one on all about how SharePoint is not a network drive replacement. It would go all the problems folders cause with examples, etc.

Organizations often struggle in early SharePoint implementation to understand how to really utilize SharePoint and hit the ground running. One of the most common ways that companies initially implement SharePoint is as a replacement for network drives. Because of the obvious information management features like "Check Out" and "Versioning", SharePoint administrators often think that SharePoint is just an improvement over storing information on network drives. But SharePoint is NOT a replacement for network drives.

In this webinar we will discuss the best way to utilize SharePoint to manage information lifecycle and how to use SharePoint to implement business processes focused on that content. We will discuss what SharePoint is truly designed for and best practices for Library architecture to avoid the problems caused by Folder structure. We will discuss how to move beyond the inefficient and antiquated practice of storing content in containers for categorizing and see how metadata implementation sets your SharePoint system up for success in many ways.

Topics to be covered:

  • What is SharePoint? The big picture!
  • What are Libraries and What can they be used for?
  • What is Metadata?
  • Folders vs Metadata
  • Common problems created by folders
  • Taking a complex folder structure and replacing it by architecting a Library for the content

Fri, October 16, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

Exactly what is Gamification and how can it be used to drive Engagement and Collaboration of SharePoint users? Gamification is driving game-like content in non game-like websites. We mostly know about badges, leaderboards, reputations, and points in SharePoint 2013 communities. More often than not, people laugh at this and think it's silly. That is, until I remind them that eBay works this way as well as the Boy Scouts. It's all about people building reputations within communities and that indicates to other community members who is engaged and whom we can go to for subject matter expertise. This webinar will dive into the SharePoint 2013 Community features that help get members engaged and help us find information and connections more effectively.

The topics that will be covered in this one hour webinar:

  • Community features
  • Badges
  • Leader Boards
  • Points
  • Reputations
  • Driving engagement and adoption using these tools
