I have been with Microsoft since 2002, but I have been with Dynamics even longer, starting out with a Dynamics NAV partner in 1992. I currently lead the Partner Programs team in the US Dynamics organization and look forward to keeping in touch with the US Dynamics Partner Community on this blog.
On the heels of the successful 3-city Business Leader Roadshow which concluded last week, we are excited to announce a new series of remotely-delivered sessions specifically for partner business owners and executive management teams. As our partner readiness & training team explains…
These sessions leverage the concepts and ideas introduced at the 2012 Business Leader Roadshow – with a deep look specifically into the Sales and Service Delivery functions of Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM practices. This session is a must for everyone – those who attended the Roadshow and those who were unable to make the event.
Like the roadshow, the continuation series is aligned to two tracks based on the business model structure needed to successfully support and serve customers in your core competency area::
We will also be holding a 90-minute Marketing & Sales Strategy Review for Marketers session on February 16.

Microsoft today launches its newest version of Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail, software that will help businesses handle just about anything the changing world of retail can throw at them, be it rapid expansion, complex pricing and inventory, or evolving means of customer interaction.
Learn more on the Microsoft News Center.
You can also access a variety of resources on the US Launch Portal for Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail on PartnerSource.
Two valuable tools are now available to you!
Schedule Builder enables attendees to make a customized Convergence session schedule, so that you can plan your time from (almost) dawn to dusk. An important note is that while this is a helpful tool to maximize time at Convergence, it is not a placeholder and session attendance is available on a first come, first serve basis only.
Convergence Connect is a structured networking tool that makes it easy to connect and network with fellow attendees. This tool is open to all Convergence attendees and allows you to find people you'd like to meet with by searching profiles for keywords, geographies, Microsoft Dynamics product, industry, and more.
Access both of these resources under the After You Register menu item on the Convergence website.
