A sensible approach to rolling out enterprise-wide SharePoint solutions, on premises, includes a training component

Sharepoint Server 2010 or 2013, Enterprise Edition, can be used as the computing platform for custom solutions. The core, out-of-the-box, features of SharePoint Server, when combined with the comparatively less expensive development cost of customization make this type of implementation attractive for stakeholders. Including a training component for personnel distributed across the organization is a good way to add to the odds of success in the overall effort. We offer a lot of specialized training content on the flavors of popular functionality often talked about in the SharePoint user community. The complete list of what we offer can be found…

One of the challenges of self paced training is finding the inspiration to continue through a set of learning objectives.

SharePoint Communities Benefit Most When Provided With Access to Authoritative Training Content

Training SharePoint users in the technical procedures they must master to successfully complete daily computing tasks can be an especially value packed endeavor. But if the techniques communicated are either not considered industry best practices, or the method of instruction somehow fails to deliver the right procedures to users, then the effort can, unfortunately, prove unsuccessful.
