How your executive sponsor and his management team are going to hurt your Teams project

After months of hard work, your Teams project is live! The Teams and it's SharePoint sites are a co-creation of your projectteam's expertise and business requirements. Champions and key users helped you to built a solution based on the user voice of the organization. You even tested and ran a pilot with a selection of end users. Here the first problems emerge. Despite all your efforts and some enthusiastic champions, the pilot is failing. End users aren’t using the tool and don’t feel the urge to start. Now it’s impossible to get best practices. And you didn’t even start implementing SharePoint in the organization. Sounds familiar?
Of course you’re aware of the important role of sponsors in projects like these, so you started yours by finding one. From the beginning your sponsor supports the project and makes the right funds available. In this interactive presentation we’ll discuss the role of sponsors and the way they can harm your project (despite their initial support), ways to identify potential problems and take the right (counter)measures. The role SharePoint can play in this process we’ll highlight as well.
