International contact profile • The Contact profile contains a primary entity such as law firm or Company name, Country and city or town • We have incorporated professional profile linking services and this is used to expose more information for our lawyers if required. • Social networking through LinkedIn services has also been integrated for reaching out and collaborating.

All precedents will be grouped by category and visible to authenticated users as a Tree View navigation selection

A tale of two SharePoints • SharePoint evangelists • “SharePoint can do anything!” • SharePoint skeptics • “Prove it!”
Forrester on SharePoint “While 'if you build it, they will come' might work in the movies, the approach has yielded neither wide adoption of SharePoint nor satisfaction with the product. Too often, IT provides the latest and greatest SharePoint release only to watch many users turn their backs on the solution...” Dissatisfaction is centered on several areas, including adoption challenges, a dislike for the SharePoint user experience, a preference for other tools like email and skepticism over its business value. ComputerWorld, quoting Forrester, 6 Feb 2013
We built it and they did come… One year after initial deployment, there was a 6,000% increase in usage over our old intranet.
Two years later, we have: • About 4,000 sites • Over 750,000 content items, including over 50,000 indexed and searchable precedents and know-how documents • Over 60,000 web parts • Over 1,000 active site managers, with many more content contributors • About 80% of people use it regularly • Over 1,000,000 hits per month
How did we defy the odds? • Listening … skeptically! • Design … SharePoint? • Innovating … continually • Testing … iteratively • Responding Get the basics right. Be practical.
Design principles • Business capability over technical possibility – cutting edge collaboration is practical! • Central governance – simplified • Local content control – simplified • Out of the box where possible • Customized where desirable
Our “Site Provisioning Application” (SPA) achieves 3 objectives: (1) By using a wizard, it is very easy for people to create a site using pre-defined site templates. (2) By gathering both automated and manual contextual information, it ensures that new sites are created in the right place in our site hierarchy / information architecture, which helps to maintain the intuitiveness and structural integrity of navigation, as well as improving search results. (3) By applying an automated workflow that includes approvals by the Parent Site Manager and the Global Content Support Team, duplicate sites can be eliminated, and positioning in the information architecture can be validated.
Microsoft subsequently deployed a similar site provisioning feature in SP 2010 (below). We intend to retain our own Site Provisioning Application as we believe our application is more intuitive, user friendly and relevant to our environment.
The “Web Part Wizard” (WPW) enables easy design, creation and updating of pages. SP 2007 requires multiple steps and clicks to create a backstage container and then create and position a web part on a page. The WPW combines these into a simple 1 step / 3 click process. As well as making the creation of new web parts simple, it also enables easy re-use of existing web parts, including their content.
Examples Global Practice Group – virtual practice group needing to disseminate information and collaborate on client work Global Technology Project Site– the project that I will be speaking about tomorrow could not have been completed nearly as effectively without our project site, which enabled effective collaboration between people in all 72 offices Technology Training– publication of all training materials for all global systems and applications Business Services Information and Collaboration– an expertise, locator, information portal, and team collaboration space Global Pitch Tracker – the most visited page on our global intranet!

The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the process to ‘tidy up’ the mess, as opposed to understanding it’s a ‘day one’ issue and part of everything. Tom Peters
