Adopting collaboration and knowledge sharing with SharePoint – presentation for University of Copenhagen

by Anders B. Skjønaa (

This week I gave a presentation at the University of Copenhagen, about how to nurse adoption of collaborative and knowledge sharing behavior among SharePoint users across the faculties. Thanks to and the university for inviting me.

The meeting counted about 40 representatives from – probably – all faculties, which was very rewarding in terms of understanding how a large and fragmented organization like the University of Copenhagen worked with these areas. My presentation was a general introduction to methodologies that have proven to be working in other organizations. But during the discussions it was clear that – in an organization of internal administrative personnel, researchers, students and external partners (especially for research), spread across different organizations – there is a unique scenario.

I often participate in meetings like this, to learn about the scenarios different organizations are facing with SharePoint. In many cases the issues are the same or similar, and I may have a few ideas or experiences to share, and in other cases I meet more complex organizational challenges where the best approach may be to slice things up a bit or even go “water-fall”.

The University of Copenhagen case is really interesting and I hope to get the chance to learn much more about efforts and results.I have read some of the studies and research that have been done – and it is actually quite a bit – about the topic of collaboration and knowledge sharing in the university world. There is a definite need to understand the conclusions from all of this work and to make it relevant for the day to day operation. Work to be done…

For now – here is the slide deck I used. I know some of the participants have requested it.

Collaboration – High level Adoption Strategies

If you have any feedback to my presentation and talk, please leave it here as a comment. This type of feedback is obviously important to move forward.

I wish you a great weekend!

      OK – you’re right…

      The PDF is in danish as requered by most danish public athorities and orgnizations. Could you run in through Google translate or something similar. If there is anything specific that you would like to know about, I be glad to comment. But right now I am traveling, so unfortunately I cant make an english version of the presentation.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.
