Engage user group – session slides

I had the honor of being able to present two sessions earlier this week at the Engage usergroup event in Breda, the Netherlands with two great co-speakers. The slides of both sessions have been published to Slideshare:

Getting to the core, requirements gathering in the wild

Sophie Lavignac-Le Madec & Femke Goedhart

The basis of any good project is good requirements. Knowing what it is you are going to build / get determines whether your project will be a success or a flat out failure. In reality though the requirements phase is often trivialized or even forgotten. This session will give you tips & tricks as well as explain to you the basic techniques on how to effectively get to the core of the requirements, identify ways of prioritizing them and explain some core concepts of Functional and Technical design elements. Coming from a requirement gathering as well as development & customer point of view Femke & Sophie will take you through some of the real life examples they have come across and a lot of do’s & don’ts they have seen (and despaired over)

Social sharing vs. organised structure. Must you select only one?

Stuart McIntyre & Femke Goedhart

So you have connections (or you are thinking about it) and you want to know what it can do for you in the sense of *socialy* managing files but you don’t really know how that concept works or if it would work for your organization.Tags or folders, share or private, community files or personal files, meta-data and document types? What does it mean and where do you start?
Stuart McIntyre and Femke Goedhart will take you through the ups and downs of social file management. When to use it, when not and what you need to know about file and document management to have the discussion if this should replace the department file share.
Coming from two different backgrounds – and often butting heads about this topic – Stuart & Femke will pitch the points and concepts that you need to think about with managing your documents in a social environment and show you examples on how and where to use IBM Connections to do so.
