Putting Social Media to Work in Your Intranet Strategy

Social media and SharePoint have emerged as true “game changers,” technology that promise tremendous breakthroughs in intranet performance as well as considerable risks in over-investment and weak adoption. Maximizing the return on investing in social media requires a strategic understanding of how an individual organization can most effectively plan and deploy it, and what strategic objectives it will help to achieve. This session will describe how to maximize the return on investment of social media, walking through the importance of developing necessary governance and planning.

  • An appreciation for the critical success factors required to strategically manage the deployment of social media
  • Insights into real world best practices for the strategies required to maximize the performance of SharePoint and social media
