  • WhoKnows what SharePoint is?Has used SharePoint or is using it today (version)?For PM or other activities?
  • My goal is to show you how simple and fast it is to create a great SharePoint PM site and turn you into SharePoint believers. Tomorrow I expect everyone to talk to their IT department to get access to your intranet SharePoint environment (and if they don’t have it, demand it). And if you have any questions on how to do something I expect to hear from you so I can help make your PM life a happier one.
