Full Description

SharePoint is a large and complex platform that can seem overwhelming at first. Agile SharePoint 2013 shows you how to tackle the delivery process from start to finish with the help of proven Agile project management principles.

The book starts with an overview of SharePoint 2013 and what it can do. These days SharePoint is much more than a content management system or intranet site, and you might be surprised by some of the possibilities available to you. You'll be introduced to Agile project management and why it is well suited to planning and delivering a new SharePoint project, and you'll find out, in a roadmap for the rest of the book, how the Scrum project management approach can lead you to success on this popular but complex platform.

After this groundwork, the author leads you through the implementation process in a series of concise and easily digested chapters. You'll find advice here on everything from gathering business requirements and building a winning team to developing your solution, training your users, and release planning. Some concerns, such as communication and change management, need to be addressed at every stage of the implementation process, so these are discussed next, and the book ends with two chapters on how to use SharePoint effectively on a day-to-day basis once your project is up and running, including how to use SharePoint 2013 to manage other Agile projects.

The book is a balanced mix of concise explanations with practical guidelines, diagrams, tools and case studies. By the end of the book, you'll be equipped with the knowledge and tools to implement a solution that works for you and saves time and money for your organization.

Design and deliver the best for your business with Agile SharePoint 2013.
