Webinar - What losing weight reminded me about SharePoint user adoption

Written By: Virgil Carroll

I wanted to thank my good friend David Coleman and his friends at MetaVis for inviting me to present my user adoption talk during a recent webinar this past December.  I enjoyed the opportunity to speak and the great questions at the end.

Getting users to adopt SharePoint is always such a big challenge.  Where my talk has some parts that are 'tongue-in-cheek', overall I walk through many of the best practices we have developed over time to around setting expectations, planning, communicating, educating and learning from our mistakes.
