The workshop introduced why SharePoint/Office 365 user adoption is a wicked problem, outlined two examples of how companies that “got it wrong” were able to build a turnaround strategy, and provided practical tips for driving adoption wins. The workshop also highlighted several key tenets of effective user adoption:

These strategies can change the course of your SharePoint implementation and catapult you from being “just another file repository” to being the premier workflow automation tool people want to use.
