Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Houston – Group Therapy Returns!

A week to go until SharePoint Saturday Houston 2013, and I have been selected as a speaker!

Once again, I’ll be presenting SharePoint Group Therapy – A SharePoint Governance Workshop.

Bring your SharePoint governance issues and questions, we’ll work as a group to resolve your issues and help you gain control and drive user adoption.

Business alignment can be seen as the marriage of IT and business objectives. Every marriage has its rocky moments, and sometimes a therapist is needed to resolve those issues. Perhaps your marriage could benefit from a little SharePoint Group Therapy?

See you in Houston!


SharePoint Group Therapy on SharePoint ShopTalk

In case you haven’t heard, I’ve joined the panelists on SharePoint ShopTalk, a weekly webconference where you can interact with panelists, ask your questions and share your thoughts and opinions too!

On the Thursday, June 28 edition of SharePoint ShopTalk, I’ll be leading SharePoint Group Therapy (A SharePoint Governance Workshop), a session formatted as an open discussion where I talk about some of the governance challenges I have faced, and ask everyone else to share their challenges as well,  Together, in the style of group therapy, we’ll discuss everyone’s SharePoint problems and work together to provide solutions and approaches to managing your SharePoint governance issues.

This session will be reprising the successful format of sessions run at SharePoint Saturday Austin in January, and SharePoint Saturday Houston in April of this year.

Every SharePoint implementation is unique, as they each live in in their own environment of users, business objectives, requirements, and organizational cultures.  The workshop format allows us to tailor solutions to the problems in your environment.  But despite the uniqueness of your implementation, the pains you feel are a lot like the pains felt by others, so (at the very least) you’ll be discussing your SharePoint problems with a sympathetic group.

Welcome to the SharePoint Therapist


Welcome to SharePointTherapist.com, the “Dear Abby” of the Sharepoint community.

Do your users complain about the usability of your SharePoint?  Do you suffer from site proliferation? Rights management issues? Content inaccuracy and staleness? Can you easily tell who owns the content of a particular site or list? Do you have rogue SharePoint servers in your environment? Is your SharePoint out of control?

Then you might benefit from SharePoint Therapy.

  • What problems are you having in your current environment?
  • What fears do you have about implementing governance?
  • What fears do you have about implementing SharePoint?

Send your questions regarding SharePoint Governance to jim@adcock.net or tweet them to @SPointTherapist. (Let me know how anonymous you need to be too!) Once I get your question, I may ask you for some clarifications, and I’ll post it here on SharePointTherapist.com. I’ll do my best to advise you on your options, and provide insight based on my experiences, and I invite the rest of the SharePoint community to share their opinions and experiences as well.

Did I mention it is all FREE?  Free to ask, free to answer, free to read what everyone has written.
