Play to its strengths - My next tip for success with SharePoint is a deceptively simple one. While accepting that SharePoint has its weaknesses, success accrues from deliberately playing to the application’s many strengths. Well d’uh, I hear some of you say. Bear with me – my point is acceptable I think, because many deployments I’ve seen simply don’t do this. They do the obvious – for example, “we’ve installed Team Sites for collaboration” or “we’ve rolled out SharePoint for document management” – but usually they haven’t moved far beyond this and found ways to leverage the platform’s strengths to truly make SharePoint a great fit for their environment.
