Presentation delivered to the 2013 Minnesota Government IT Symposium on 12 December 2013 by George Sawyer (Sawyer Training, Inc.)

Session Description
SharePoint represents a paradigm shift for almost every user. Metadata, no more folders, search vs. browse, links vs. attachments. Untrained or improperly trained users become a liability and put a project’s success at risk. This session helps organizations develop effective, efficient training that will assure users "buy-in" so they are productive from day one. Emphasis is on core concepts vs. learning specific tasks.

In this session, you will learn:
• Core concepts end-users must grasp to assure a successful implementation of SharePoint
• Tips and tricks to help make the transition easier (and even fun) for users
• Resources for planning effective and efficient training programs
