It seems like companies like there SharePoint admins running around with papers and tools in there hands and looking busy. I can get a lot of work done at my desk but my current company will assign me a task if im sitting at my desk. I dont like to be assigned tasks, I would rather start projects on my own. What are some SharePoint tasks that require a lot of running around and collaberation. Currently I work for a large farm intranet portal. thanks
You need to watch the Seinfeld episode where George scurries around with papers trying to look important to keep from being fired.
The SharePoint task that requires a lot of running around and CollabOration is the act of nailing down the specifics of what a user wants (aka Requirements.). You then translate into what they can have, based on what SharePoint has to offer. From there, you demonstrate a proof of concept, and then get the users to sign off on the Specifications. Next, you go build their site/functionality and present it to them.
They, in turn, blow up and go over your head and tell your boss that you're an idiot and built it nothing like they want/need. You then pull out the papers and scurry to multiple meetings covering your ass with their signed document stating to what they agreed. They then tell your boss that you forged their signature, but luckily you got them to sign a birthday card, so you compare the signatures and bust them out again.
Hopefully this describes the endless paper scurry that you see the others performing.
Here's a little Dilbert that helps illustrate it:
I hope you now have a better idea of how the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) really works.
