    Thanks to everyone who responded to the sign up request. I received 80 requests from testers and they will be getting information in email soon. If you did not get into the pilot, I’m sorry, but we had to limit the numbers. I will post details sometime in the spring if we choose to move forward with a commercial product for labs online. Thanks, Kim

    Sample chapter: Enterprise Content Management with Microsoft SharePoint: Content Control

    • 0 Comments
    This chapter from Enterprise Content Management with Microsoft SharePoint is all about consumption and accessing the content you need in an intuitive and structured manner. After content is in the system, it’s time to put it to work. You might think this is the easy part. Functionally, it is much easier than the creation and capture portions of the ECM life cycle, but strategically, it’s very difficult. We have found many organizations that are several years past an initial SharePoint deployment looking back and realizing that the adoption of this technology has not really improved a business process. In many cases, it has either become a web version of a shared drive silo or a collection of mismatched sites that aren’t easily navigated by users. To read the complete chapter, visit this page...

    I. M. Wright: “The new guy”

    • 0 Comments
    We hope that you know about I. M. Wright’s “Hard Code,” by Eric Brechner (Microsoft Press, 2008). Eric Brechner is Director of Development Excellence in Microsoft’s Engineering Excellence group. I. M. also writes a monthly column, and the column for this month can be found here . The podcast for this month’s column is 8 mins 34 seconds and is here . Here’s the beginning: “Hey, you’re the new guy!” Marvelous. You’ve transformed from a useful, relevant, sought-after authority to a roadside attraction. Whoever you were before, whatever value you used to embody, whatever accomplishments you might have achieved, now amount to nothing more than marketing hype. Your new co-workers may be outwardly curious and pleasant, but inside they are skeptical and wary. Look, most people are nice. They want you...

    Carl Chatfield: Top 10 Problems, #3: Put far too much detail in a schedule

    • 0 Comments
    Carl here. ProjHugger is for Microsoft Office Project newbies, enthusiasts, and zealots. I publish new posts every Monday morning, but you can add comments any time. This week’s ProjHugger post continues the “Top 10 problems new (and not so new) Project users have, and what you can do to ease the pain” series, which started like this: #10 , #9 , #8 , #7 , #6 , #5 , and #4 . Problem #3: Put far too much detail in a schedule Using Project effectively is sometimes an exercise in restraint. Just because you can plan out work to a fantastic level of detail does not mean you should. Knowing when enough detail is just right is a fine art of project management. The Devil is (in) the Details This is a problem many of us have experienced first-hand, and some of us have likely caused (I for one am guilty...

    Discovering a lost classic

    • 1 Comments
    I have been reading The Man in the Iron Mask this past week. It is the final volume in the Three Musketeers series of books. The book has been extremely exciting to read. Whereas I had seen the Three Musketeers Movie, and therefore was familiar with the basic plot outlines, I knew nothing about the Iron Mask book. Every page has been a new revelation, a new adventure, and something I was dying to find out how it would end. I actually prefer to read a book in a single sitting—if at all possible, because it makes the book more enjoyable, and it allows me to get into the world that is created by the author in a more complete fashion. Of course, there are practical things such as work, and life in general that can interfere with the goal of single sitting book consumption. With The Man in the Iron...
