I was building a collection of requirements a Site Collection Administrator/Site Owner in SharePoint should have before being "turned loose" on their Site Collection. So Far I've come up with:
Have a very solid understanding of the purpose of SharePoint and their organization's mission in implementing the SharePoint Intranet
Reasonable understanding of basic SharePoint terminology, when asked must be able to define:Web Application,Site Collection,Sub-Site,Web Part,List,Etc…
Have a working understanding of SharePoint governance at their organization, be able to understand how it applies to them in day-to day site management.
Have a working understanding of the Organization Site Architecture. Be able to understand how they are allowed to expand on the site architecture at their department level
Have a good understanding of most SharePoint “out of the box” features, with emphasis on: Document Libraries,Lists,Blogs,Calendars,Announcements,Web Parts (implementing),Content Editor Web Part,Etc. (Be able to find a component and implement in general, advanced concepts like Forms aren’t a major concern)
Know how to create sites (including Blogs) underneath their own site, and know when it is appropriate (referencing Site Architecture) to create a site
Know how to use Permissions, understanding inheritance
Know where to go for further information, this includes: The roles IT and other departments play in SharePoint and who/when to go to for help
Other useful external sites (SharePoint Stackexchange, etc.)
Was curious what other SharePoint people have trained for in their Site Administration as well. Anything vital that you think was missed? I understand that this is probably different for every organization but there are probably some common threads. What do you think?
