One of the most popular blog posts I have here, is a document that I didn’t even write.  Microsoft PFE Antoni Hanus wrote an article a while back called Operations Manager 101:


Well, Antoni is back with his brand new invention:  a 101 online guide for Service Manager 2012.

    Thanks for the suggestion Steve!  I have a somewhat crazy messed up English accent after being here in the States for 5 years, but if you can stomach that, I'll look into it 🙂  Thanks Kevin for the post too!
