Registration open for Boston Area SharePoint Users Group on 1/12/11

BASPUG_195square_initialsRegistration is now open for the January 12th, 2011 meeting of the Boston Area SharePoint Users Group, at the Microsoft NERD center in Cambridge, MA.

Our presenter for our next meeting is Scott Jamison, Managing Partner at Jornata. He will be presenting "SharePoint 2010 Usage and Adoption Best Practices".

This session will cover best practices for usage and adoption of SharePoint 2010. We’ll answer questions for both the SharePoint adoption team and users alike….

For the adoption team:

• How can I get my employees excited about using this new collaboration technology (champions, incentives)? 
• How do I make sure all the employees in my organization understand and feel comfortable using SharePoint?
• How can I make sure that SharePoint fits into existing business processes, and makes people’s jobs easier? 
• How do I manage the behavioral change required to integrate SharePoint into the way people work?

For users:

• What collaboration methods and site templates are most appropriate for which types of situations?
• What should I ask myself before setting up a SharePoint site? 
• How should I manage content? 
• What should I think about when tagging? 
• Etiquette for social interactions?
