The 5 most important policies to implement on SharePoint 2010

If you introduce SharePoint 2010 into your organization, dont take the Magic 8 Ball approach: Are we going to allow everyone to have a My Site? The Magic 8 ball says, Hazy, try again. If we give everyone a My Site can they use the blog feature? you ask. The Magic 8 Ball answers, Concentrate and ask again.

Hard work and planning, not the Magic 8 Ball, will answer the tough questions asked by senior leaders about policies.

In this session you will learn five policies you should work on first:

  • My Site policywhat employees can and cant share
  • Internal Social Media policyguidelines for acceptable content sharing
  • Information Architecture policy. Find out who controls information and where
  • Taxonomy and metadata policy. Ensure your search runs smoothly
  • Training policy. Set expectations and ownership for delivery

Creating an award-winning intranet on a tight budget

Limited budgets and resources may make it impossible (or so you thought) to upgrade your corporate intranet with social media. Not so. This presentation describes how SCANA, a South Carolina utility, created The Edge, a world-class intranet built on a slim budget. They used only internal resources and SharePoint.

You'll learn how:

  • SCANA collaborated with IT in transforming a home-grown intranet into a SharePoint tool with search, content management and web measurement features
  • The corporate team used out-of-the-box SharePoint tools to decentralize content ownership and create a community of empowered site owners
  • The corporate communications team trained employees on the new SharePoint intranet
  • The company uses SharePoint collaborative tools and listening programs to involve employees in the business
  • You can build a business case for more internal social tools
