CalSPUG Meeting - November 17, 2011

November 08, 2011 by Greg Carnie

Another month means another CalSPUG meeting! (Web site should be up soon… sorry for the dead link.)

This meeting should be a good one - and a non-developer topic as well. However… most developers should be interested in this!

Title Keep Your Portal Governance Simple!

Start Time Doors open at 5:00pm. Presentation starts at 5:30pm. *Note: Elevators up will lock at 6:00pm if you arrive late.

Presenter Dan McCleary (@DanMcCleary)

Topic Many people seem to dread the word governance. Dread of the amount of work involved. Dread of not knowing how to proceed. Dread of unnecessary bureaucracy. Unfortunately, this hesitance is what kills a lot of good portal governance planning. Yet, if some basic elements are put in place, a model can be built that can be understood by all portal users and is relatively easy to maintain.

Speaker Bio Dan McCleary has worked in the internet industry for over 15 years holding many positions including designer, developer, project manager and instructor. Between 2006 and 2010 Dan held the position of Consulting Director at Ideaca, one of Canada’s leading IT and Management Consulting companies, in charge of the consulting staff for their largest office. He has recently ventured back into the consulting world, focusing his efforts on portals, collaboration and social media. A goal of his management consulting approach is to provide clarity by striving for simplicity.

Food and drinks provided. SharePint location TBD.

Written by Greg Carnie

I am a SharePoint consultant (Business Analyst by title) with Ideaca Knowledge Services based in Toronto, Canada. I have been actively working with SharePoint for three years now and have been specializing more in the developmental and architectural aspects of SharePoint. In a previous life I worked both with SAP and Microsoft Exchange. In my spare time (yes – I have figured out how to have a life outside of SharePoint – only took 3 years!!) I read, have started to get myself back into decent shape, and intend to spend a significant amount of time outside this summer.
