My Top Three Social Software Sessions from SharePoint Conference 2014

by Larry Cannell  |  March 18, 2014  |  1 Comment

Although I did not attend this year’s SharePoint Conference, I spent (far too much) time over the weekend going through many of the slides and videos from the conference, which are now available on Channel9.

Here are my top three social software sessions from the conference. I like these sessions because they either provide great advice around the tactics that were used to deploy social software or do a particularly good job describing the opportunities:

  1. Real-World Challenges and Value in Introducing Enterprise Social  (Melanie Hohertz, Cargill) – I especially liked the tactics shared (starting at slide 16)
  2. Driving Enterprise Social From the Bottom Up  (Virpi Oinonen, – Clear explanations and effective tactics wrapped in engaging drawings (Dilbert 2.0?)
  3. Microsoft: Our Enterprise Social Journey  (Chris Slemp  and Ethan Gur-esh, Microsoft) – Check out the section: “Tales of an early adopter team” (starts at slide 18)
