Most important part of a SharePoint Implementation,
This review is from: Microsoft SharePoint 2013: Planning for Adoption and Governance (Kindle Edition)
In all my time working with SharePoint, the key thing that comes up time after time is not the technology itself (which is increasingly straightforward to roll out) but questions that arise around managing and delivering the business outcomes that SharePoint can and should provide. With a comprehensive platform like SharePoint you do need to think about a number of things to do with how your company will use and manage it's information to best effect, how employees and third parties can work more collaboratively across organisational and geographical boundaries, and how to make sure you encourage end users to take advantage of these new tools to work more effectively. "Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Planning for Adoption and Governance" does a great job of covering all the main things that an implementation or run team needs to think about above and beyond making it work technically. The SharePoint projects that I've seen come unstuck or lose their way, have done so because not enough attention was paid to the sorts of things this book covers, either at the outset or in the run phase. Success on the other hand is assured when you continue to put business value, business partner sponsorship and consistent user experiences at the heart of your delivery and maintain this through governance as part of your business as usual. I would rate this book as essential reading to anyone working with SharePoint or planning to roll it out. It's even more essential if you need to re-invigorate a SharePoint implementation delivered as an IT project that isn't delivering the intended value. This book will help you to reset.
