End user adoption is very important in every aspect of work and in the development of new technologies. For a platform like SharePoint, which can bring a huge change in the mindset of users, you can better do this the right way. The good implementation of the technology is ofcourse very important, but getting the users comfortable in using SharePoint is even more important.
Back in 2007, you had the “Gear Up” kit to help you drive SharePoint adoption in your organization. Now, Microsoft has released a new kit to help you change the mindset of the end-users to use SharePoint: SharePoint Adoption Kit 2010
The Lunch & Learn kit contains all the materials you need to promote SharePoint within your organization. The kit includes instructions, templates, videos, quick reference cards and more to help you deploy an internal SharePoint resource site – a place to access SharePoint information and tools, and connect around the best part of the day: lunch. Download this kit to show your team how SharePoint makes life, and lunch, a little better.
You can find more information on the IUserSharePoint website.
Next to that, Here is a great “Adoption Best Practices” white paper from Microsoft.
Lee Reed from EndUserSharePoint.com has also given a good slideshow on slideshare on this topic.
