Book Description

The depth and breadth of SharePoint as a technology can be daunting to any executive managing a SharePoint technical team or pondering the next steps for an upcoming SharePoint deployment within their organization. This book demystifies SharePoint and its potential business value with simple, non-technical answers to the everyday SharePoint questions that business executives should be asking. SharePoint is Microsoft’s fastest selling product, and from the outside has the perceived ability to do anything for anyone in any business. Microsoft SharePoint for Business Executives: Q&A Handbook is the starting point in the SharePoint knowledge process. It asks and answers the simple questions that business and technical managers should all understand about the challenges and opportunities that executives face when deploying SharePoint.

Unlike other technical SharePoint guides, “Microsoft SharePoint for Business Executives: Q&A Handbook” is the ultimate primer in SharePoint education, helping business executives understand what it can do, and preparing you to make the right decisions.

Along the way you’ll learn about cloud deployment approaches, managing your first SharePoint project, as well as taking a deep dive into how to define a SharePoint strategy and governance. With this Pocket Guide in hand, you’ll be able to ask the right questions of your technical team and business stakeholders before pulling the SharePoint trigger.

Format: Paperback
Before we installed SharePoint a few years ago, we thought that a "for Dummies" book would be best to get us up to speed. That was too technical and in detail. I then stumbled on this book one of the authors blogs. This book has helped me struggle through the SharePoint vocabulary. A good primmer for managing and deployment SharePoint.

Format: Paperback
A good book as a primer for SharePoint. The Q&A format of each chapter is good. It could be a bit more technical, but I suppose it's not supposed
to be a techie book. The chapter pertaining to SharePoint and possible cloud deployment options was very informative.

This book is excellent! I'd been looking for a good SharePoint book that my boss can read for a long time but this way exceeded my expectations.

This isn't a book for techies, though they will probably get a few good tips out of it. It's a book for less technical employees. It explores SharePoint in just the right amount of detail an provides some approaches of the extended features without getting too bogged down in them.

When reviewing technical books, I always have a goal in mind. In this case, my goal was simply to feel like everything had been covered yet still take away at least one "wow" moment where despite my long history with SharePoint, I pick up something new.

In this book, there were several wow moments, particularly on Governance and the cloud.

There are a couple of ambitious chapters near the end which cover more on how to start your first SharePoint project, which could be a whole book.

Finally, the book ends with a chapter dealing with `Where to start', which is perfect.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for executives, directors, managers and other key decision makers working on building a roadmap around SharePoint governance and strategy. The question and answer format is used to organize the sections around key challenges, but it also focuses on prescribing an actionable response. The various sections offer high level guidance in several key areas, such SharePoint in the cloud to on-site hosting, understanding roles and responsibilities to growing proper SharePoint teams, and maintaining and supporting the platform. Most importantly, this book emphasizes on leveraging the capabilities of SharePoint, and supporting this robust and complex platform. I recommend this book for everyone who has a SharePoint environment and is looking to mature the platform properly.

Only a few chapters in, but once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. This book is strongly influencing how I will articulate SharePoint in future sales discussions. This is a perfect book for sales executives to get a better understanding of the platform, and an opportunity to understand how best to present and sell to prospective clients.
