Improve Adoption with these SharePoint Training Resources and Tutorials

Improve your SharePoint Adoption

Often during the drive to implement SharePoint, we consider executive sponsorship, determine the needed information architecture, establish governance policies, and a design to support the organization’s focus and goals. Unfortunately, although recommended as a key component to user adoption, the SharePoint training strategy is often not planned well enough to support a successful roll out.

User adoption is the number one challenge to a SharePoint implementation’s success, and a key factor in adoption is adequate training for users. Some users need written instructions or user manuals for reference, some need video walk-throughs, others need hands-on experiential training, and still others benefit from all of the above training methods.

To aid in your adoption efforts we’ve compiled the following list of recommended training resources to aid in your adoption efforts. Take a look, and let us know if you’d like additional information on any specific skill set.
