SharePoint Fest Chicago 2012: Empowering Reluctant Project Managers with SharePoint 2013

7 Ways to Empower Reluctant Project Managers with SharePoint 2013

Author: Amy Smith, Senior Project Manager, Perficient
Well, I liked Dux Raymond Sy’s Keynote address so much at SharePoint Fest 2012 that I attended his session titled, “7 Ways to Empower Reluctant Project Managers with SharePoint 2013”.  Dux is the author of “SharePoint for Project Managers” and has a PMP certification.  But, most of the people who manage projects don’t have credentials like his.  This was the focus of his presentation.  He wanted to show how the features of SharePoint 2010 and 2013 help those who are not professional project managers.  Dux went through presentation slides to set the stage, but then moved into demonstration mode where we saw his concepts in action.  You can see his presentation here.
7 Ways to Empower Reluctant Project Managers with SharePoint 2013I was most impressed with the synchronization between Microsoft Project and  SharePoint.  You can move between the two, updating either or both and then synchronizing them.  Then, display your project plan contents in SharePoint in an easy-to-visualize manner, looking more like a checklist than a complicated project plan. 
Dux also showed the power of SharePoint metrics for dashboards by easily communicating your project progress to team members and senior managers.  So, click on the link to see his presentation video and learn more about these features and the other 5 ways to empower your reluctant project managers.
