SharePoint 2010 out of the box (OOTB)! • Using a SharePoint 2010 out of the box (OOTB) strategy enabled rapid delivery of key requirements.. • Prioritised list of requirements were mapped to what comes OOTB in SharePoint 2010. • We were surprised (and delighted) that approx. 80% of the requirements was able to be delivered using OOTB SharePoint functionality. • This was fantastic as we only had 4 weeks to deliver our GEL intranet site!

  7. Sprints • Estimates completed and broken down into a max 4 hour tasks • Tasks organised into weekly deliverables with a clear outcome • Deliver ‘Live Feeds’ • ‘Team Sites’ • ’News Articles’ etc. • Tasks arranged on a work ‘wall’ • Daily stand ups

  8. Show and Tells • Weekly ‘Show and Tell’ with stakeholders • Key benefits of these sessions are: • See what has been achieved • Opportunity for providing feedback • Takes people on ‘the journey’ and obtains ‘buy-in’ • Eliminates any surprises

  9. Stabilisation Window • Last week – no changes! • Used this to test functions and features • Fix bugs • Final business acceptance test and ‘tiny tweaks’
