SharePoint Best Practices Conference

I’m speaking at the SharePoint Best Practices conference in November.

It’s sort of a funny story.  I was in Virginia presenting at the SUGDC conference and that Friday was the deadline to submit speaking proposals for the BP conference.  The organizers described how they would use a "blind selection" process and that every effort would be made to select presentation on the basis of its value, etc.  To maximize my chances of getting selected, I submitted two proposals.  The selection committee picked both.

My colleague (Natalya Voskresenskaya) and I will discuss a real-world governance model that we and our client put together for a substantial SharePoint rollout project last summer.  The objective here is to describe the details of the governance plan and why we believe it represents best practices in the context of Sharepoint, Governance and similar companies.

Second, I will present a process for obtaining great business requirements from End Users.  This goes back to one of my very early blog posts, inaptly titled "MOSS: Effective introduction to an Organization".

This conference looks to be crazily full of great information and I highly recommend tearing yourself away from your work for three days, joining in on these presentations and networking with both conference attendees and speakers.  It will be time and money well spent.

Hope to see you there 🙂
