SharePoint vs Local

I created the SharePoint space and added the team members since 2015.
It is not long after I know about SharePoint, part of the offering from Office 365.

I like the idea of SharePoint where it offers team member to access to same folder, same file, and edit simultaneously.

However, I just come to notice that, even though the effort to maintain a site – there are still many prefer to download to the local, and edit from their end – and email the world of their new version.

They might have downloaded a version a week ago, while every team member edited the file within this week, and his NEW version, is only new with his comments / changes.

Adoption of a new technology will need little bit of push, even though it is upset to know people from the 60’s or 70’s still like to stick in their “time proven” way of working, saving version 1.o, version 1.1, version 1.1 abc… especially when these group of people already in the managerial level.

A top-down approach – top management decided to use SharePoint, middle management stick to their old ways, those that never in management – struggle to help updating the NEW version to the SharePoint version.

Its only a decision to step forward to change – hoping for growth; or step back to safety.

Great things never come from Comfort Zone.
