I am a recent graduate just have finished a Master of Management Information Systems (MIS). Now working at a higher educational institute and got a chance to work with SharePoint.
My organisation wants to develop effective collaboration by using SharePoint to improve the entire buisness planning process. Major functions would be sending out surveies to gather opinion and feedback, recording current affairs related to the industry and perform analysis from the collected data and information. But the SharePoint must be user-friendly, some of the functions have to be linked and connected, plus users will be navigated during the process when contributing idea to the site.
My background is not from computer science, but I have few months experience on SQL Reporting Services, building up queries and put them into a report. Other than that, I don't know any programming such as .NET and VB etc. I studied process mapping and modelling such as BPMN 2.0, UML and EPC.
I will be responsible to the SharePoint development project with limited support from IT dept such as installation and configuration. I am not sure where I should get started?
At the moment, I got a book called: SharePoint 2007 for Dummies and now keep researching online to see whether any intensive course in the market that I can take.
It would great if any SharePoint experts here willing to advise me for my current situation.
Thanks and regards,
