Not shown how to use SharePoint properly
Problems with technology like Office 365 and SharePoint (and especially with migrations) always, always come from a mix of poor training, poor communication, poor usability and a lack of understanding of how users work. People are shoehorned into using it based on the how the platform was designed and built. They are not shown properly how to use it for their jobs.
‘Sustainable adoption’ is what it’s all about
There is no magic bullet, no single or simple solution. And it won’t happen overnight either. It is a journey.

‘If you build they will come’ has been a common theme for SharePoint implementations the world over. SharePoint HAS to be managed, promoted, supported and nurtured. Bit like a plant, it will wither and die if not looked after. The best thing about SharePoint is that you can do lots of things with it. The worst thing about SharePoint is that you can do lots of things with it. We will show you how to look after SharePoint.

The Head Honcho. Andrew not only has the business & communications experience, training skills, technical knowledge and all round good sense of using SharePoint, Yammer and Office 365 to improve how people work, his aims are to help people to Get Work Done.
Andy has a major thing for Yammer and enterprise social networking or as he says: "enterprise community networking". It's a bromance, sure. But he knows how to implement it and get people using it to make their life and job a lot easier. He knows it must have business and end user value.
Ah SharePoint. A breaker of many dreams. Mr. G has built many code free solutions to Get Work Done on 2007, 2010 and 2013 versions. But the focus now is on SharePoint Online and Office 365. But keep it simple, he says. 'Think of the end user' is his mantra. Don't make it complicated. Show them how to use it properly. Make training useful and ongoing. Focus on user adoption. He is also a member of the Irish SharePoint User Group.
He saw the clouds earlier. The Office 365 cloud that is. Accessing your content, documents, email, calendars, files and collaborating anywhere on any device has been his focus since his early days as a freelance road warrior in content management.
We have 20+ years’ experience in creating measureable content, communications and collaborative business solutions across multiple channels in many sectors. So why not ask us about squeezing more value about of SharePoint, Yammer and Office 365 to Get Work Done.

People have been chosen to update their team/department's section on the intranet. And they may be reluctant to take on the extra work involved. They have received training and guides on how to update their section using their chosen technical platform such as SharePoint. They have been shown how to update content but necessarily WHAT to create. Then your intranet gets stale. People complain. They stop using it. Content is out of date. It's badly written and confusing. But people are busy in their jobs and struggle to produce decent intranet content. So without decent and regularly updated content your intranet will not be used as much as you would like.
Intranets can be expensive to build and manage. But they are very, very useful and can have major value for an organisation. But you and your users need good content. And they need guidance. Intranets are usually managed by Internal Communications so they know the importance of good content and clear, effective communications.
The Intranet Authors Masterclass will show you and your content team how to create useful, valuable and interesting content to vastly improve your intranet.
