I recently replied to a post on the Mindsharp SharePoint Discussion Group about building a SharePoint questionnaire. I was surprised at the number of requests I got for more information about the questions we ask our prospective SharePoint site owners when in the initial requirements gathering phase. So I have posted what we ask people in this article. One thing to note is that in our SharePoint environment we do not foster a free-for-all for site creation. Everything is controlled and monitored and general users do not have the rights to create their own sites. Everything is run through a central SharePoint administration team. That is why our questionnaire was born… to serve a purpose to help identify which technology (SPS or WSS) should be implemented for the requested site and start initial requirements gathering.
