Even with the most well-architected, well-designed SharePoint solution, there is no guarantee that users will be jumping over themselves to use it! And, since you only just convinced your organization to migrate to SharePoint 2010, what do you do now that we’ve got yet another release of SharePoint to get our users to adopt? SharePoint provides a convenient and personalized way for your employees to find the information and tools they need to be more productive and it’s even better now and solves even more business problems. However, as great SharePoint is, it comes with a unique challenge: you often have to convince users to give it a try!

You will learn:

  • Critical elements for user adoption planning
  • Best practices for communications plans
