How to successfully drive SharePoint adoption within organizations has been a hot topic—and rightfully so—virtually since SharePoint's debut. As an administrator, you can deploy the most perfect SharePoint environment imaginable, custom-tailored to suit the specific needs of users in your organization, but if those users don't adopt the platform, and fail to incorporate SharePoint into their daily work, your carefully deployed platform will be seen as an utter failure, and very likely a catastrophically expensive one.
Consequently, successfully driving SharePoint adoption within an organization is every bit as critical as the technological aspects of its deployment. What gets talked about far less frequently, however, is the notion of ongoing, sustainable adoption.
This is where Innovative-e, a trusted Bamboo partner, comes into play. Dux Raymond Sy, a Managing Partner at Innovative-e, and a Microsoft SharePoint MVP, recently penned an article for CMS Wire on this topic, How to Drive Sustainable SharePoint Adoption in Your Organization, in which he broadly outlines Innovative-e's phased approach to help organizations achieve sustainable adoption. On April 19 at the Microsoft Technology Center in Chicago, Dux will be leading an all-day workshop on How to Get Sustainable SharePoint Adoption. Clicking that link will not only provide you with all the details on the workshop but, as a "friend of Innovative-e" (via the transitive properties of their partnership with Bamboo), it will also save you $100 off the cost of registration.
