Card Sorting Away Departmental Structures, An Information Architecture Exercise

Most taxonomies and navigation still reflect the traditional corporate hierarchies — and sometimes for good reason. However, consumers often have trouble finding content because they don’t know who owns what they need. In this session we’ll do an open card sort with a sample content inventory to demonstrate how you can nudge yourself into a more consumer friendly structure.

Getting Around to Governance

Getting Around to Governance

Governance is always the thing that people think they need to get to someday. With the pressures of managing day-to-day operations putting together a governance committee or plan may seem out of reach. In this session, you’ll learn how to get a governance project started even if you can’t get to the end. Governance is really about asking the right questions and having answers to them – or deciding you’re not ready to answer them. We’ll provide the key questions that you want to ask about how your SharePoint will work and what you can and can’t do with it. Specifically you’ll learn:
• How to get governance started even if it’s hard
• How to get benefits from governance quickly
• How to decide which things need governed – and which things don’t

Resolving Conflict When You Know You’re Right

Conflict is expected when highly passionate people work together in ambiguous situations.  However, what do you do when the conflict erupts into vocal disagreement and it seems like there’s no path forward.  In this session we’ll explain how to get to a resolution by developing emotional intelligence and learning how to understand what others are thinking – even when it seems like they’re not.  You’ll walk away with practical tools that you can use to resolve minor and major conflicts in your work and in your life.

Converting Strategy to Execution

Organizations are aware of the need for a strategy and expensive retreats often generate a strategy that ostensibly every member of senior management buys into and is driving forward.  However, few organizations are successful at implementing their strategy.  The American Management Association estimates that less than 40% of strategies are implemented.  Other research estimates that less than 10% of strategies are executed without modification.  Clearly we’ve got an execution problem when it comes to strategies.   In this session you’ll learn how to get your organization to actually execute the strategy.
