  • We don’t like change!
  • Googling SharePoint doesn’t make you a specialist!“It causes self-mutilation” – yes but don’t we get frustrated at everything? Makes you part of something doesn’t it?
  • Search – FAST, Boolean, Multiple Sources from SharePoint, Best BetsNaming Standards or Abbreviations
  • SharePoint is not CRM, ERP, SAP … NOT a silver bullet!!!!
