Securing your SharePoint sites doesn’t need to be some black-box mystery or some mystic art practiced by monks.

Security is built on simple concepts – but on a lot of them. We’ll help you organize and understand what permissions do and don’t do so you can set and manage security in your sites.

Conflict: De-escalation and Resolution

Conflict is everywhere, and it’s unavoidable. For many of us, it can be hard to admit that we’re not as good at effectively resolving conflict as we’d like to be. However, we have different tools at our disposal that help us navigate the waters of conflict – we just must figure out how to use them. Learn to identify the conditions that create conflict, the specific causes that trigger it, and the techniques for resolving conflict.

Conflict takes many forms, including the agitated employee or manager who must be redirected from the situation, helped to deescalate their anger, and finally gotten into a dialogue about how to solve the problem. In this session, we’ll address the full range of conflicts from the critical to the chronic and what to do about each of them to reach understanding – even if agreement isn’t possible.

How to Make the Right Messes

In information architecture we like to believe that we eliminate messes. The reality is that we just get to choose our messes. The trick is how to make the right choices so we end up with the right messes. That is we end up with messes that we can manage. In this session, we’ll look at the great conflicts and talk through why you might land on one side or the other. Folders vs. Metadata. Shallow-Many and Deep-Few options. Along the way we’ll dispel some deeply held beliefs that aren’t supported by science. We’ll draw from other disciplines to inform how we approach problems, and figure out how to make sure we’re making the right messes.
