Event Details

Sadie van BurenSadie Van Buren has been working on a remarkable project, developing a worksheet and model to help you measure what your SharePoint implementation will look like at its full potential. In this live online session, Sadie will walk you through the SharePoint Maturity Model, and discuss real world case scenarios so you can see the model in action. She'll end by describing her research and where it will go in the future for other industries.

This live online session is being delivered for business analysts, researchers and people responsible for their in-house SharePoint implementation. It is a high level overview to show how the model can be used to help drive the business case for SharePoint.

At the beginning of the presentation, you will receive a self-assessment template so you can follow along and gauge how you and your company are progressing with your SharePoint implementation.


SharePoint Maturity Model

Full Description:

The SharePoint Maturity Model was created to fill a gap I perceived in the community. While there are an increasing number of resources available about different aspects of this platform – and an increasing number of vendors with services, products and plugins to support and enhance it - there is no way to take a holistic view of a SharePoint implementation and describe what it could be at its full potential.

In early November 2010, I put together a first version of the SharePoint Maturity Model.

SharePoint Maturity Model

After receiving excellent community feedback on Version 1, I have expanded the Model and broken it out into more manageable sections, improved the competency definitions, and provided a self-assessment template with the hope that individuals from the SharePoint community will run their own assessments and help me build a data model. My blog post from 1/31/11 shows examples of the data it will be possible to generate - but a much larger data set is needed!
