Agile icebreaker

This Agile icebreaker uncovers work environment change. This exercise for training and workshops takes focus away from templates and certifications, that rarely matter, and shines a light onto actual adoption.

The project management SharePoint

Projects that understand what existed and what exists are both efficient and effective.

SharePoint has an incredibly rich out-of-the-box capability, but too many times the project team does not know what is capable with SharePoint.

With these self-paced, training links provide an overview of what could be to collaborate, search, publish, and file.

Project portals need to meet user objective, not IT administrator needs. More people should reject the SharePoint designer, not the SharePoint capability.

Community persona reaction for functional design

We design constantly. Our emails, training courses, project plans, policies, programs, surveys, business cases, strategies, facilitations, we are in a constant state of craft, create, model, test, build, and repair.

Whatever the intent, to take a concept from intention to adoption relies less on what you design and more on how you design.

A community persona perspective measures functional communication design success and reaction to how you design is the feedback loop of how people accept your design.
