Chris Bortlik, Drive Adoption and Get Users Excited About SharePoint

Session Abstract

You can lead a horse to water, but how are you going to make it thirsty? The key to most thriving SharePoint deployments is successful end user adoption. How will you excite your organization about SharePoint 2010? In this session, we’ll discuss real world best practices and lessons learned around rolling out SharePoint and continuing to iterate and add value to users. We will also help you avoid technical and organizational blockers to SharePoint adoption.
