My colleague Shelly Bird, a highly esteemed Architect in Microsoft Public Sector Services, has years of experience in desktop and server deployments.  She has seen what works and a whole lot of what doesn’t.  Now she is bringing her observations to the blogosphere, kicking off with a Top Ten list of deployment blockers.  I was really excited when she told me about it because it’s not going to be just another tech-oriented blog about scripting how-to, specific security settings and application compatibility.  While those issues are important to deployment projects, that’s not where projects tend to run into the most trouble.  This is much higher-level and should be read by executives.  It’s not really even Windows-specific.  It’s about decision-making (or decision-delaying) and organization culture issues.

Forward this link to your management and executives.  If you are a manager or an executive, forward it to your colleagues and friends:
