Technical Training for SharePoint 2010 is a Natural Accompaniment to a Governance Plan

Rehmani Consulting, Inc. offers a range of “people” subscriptions for communities of users of SharePoint 2010. These subscriptions are a highly cost effective solution for organizations that have opted to implement features in addition to the out of the box capabilities of SharePoint 2010.

SharePoint 2010 has magnetized a significant amount of interest across the developer community, which has built an impressive list of additional features that run on top of SharePoint 2010 to deliver important additional value from the SharePoint computing platform. The proper approach for organizations looking for a substantial return on their investment in SharePoint 2010, through cost reductions that will be realized by discontinuing computing procedures via other systems, is to produce a governance policy for SharePoint that provides a clear chain of command for policies and procedures, as well as an operations methodology for each added feature.

A system of training users is required if the operations methodology piece of the governance plan is to be successful. We do not espouse the opinion that “SharePoint should be easy; therefore, let’s proceed on that premise and skip user training”. In fact, even out of the box SharePoint 2010 is challenging for almost all non technical users. After all, how does IT inform a regional sales office that consistent terminology must be used as items are added to lists, in order to support site columns? The average sales office will breathe a long collective “duh” when directed to follow a procedures that includes maintaining SharePoint lists. To reiterate, we think it is foolhardy to assume that user training can be placed on the “nice to have” list for SharePoint 2010; rather, it needs to be included on the “must have” list.

For these communities of users, the best solution is to equip SharePoint Administrators, Developers, Architects and Power Users with unlimited access to video training content that covers the widest range of SharePoint features. Our “people” subscriptions hit the “bullseye” on this type of requirement. Whether the additional functions amount to an extensive plan to use the Term Store, Taxonomy and Metadata tagging to build a high value document repository with SharePoint, or to provide management with a series of dashboards, KPIs and balanced scorecards that can be accessed from SharePoint as a corporate Intranet platform, we have the video training courses required for technical staff to meet their requirements.

We are available to discuss your specific requirements at your convenience.
