5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Uses for SharePoint - Finally, April 29, 2009
This review is from: SharePoint for Project Management: How to Create a Project Management Information System (PMIS) with SharePoint (Paperback)
I've worked with the SharePoint product line for almost 10 years and I think it is growing into a fabulous platform for collaboration and communication. It is so full of features, options, and capabilities that many of the users I've worked with in the past have just given up for being completely and utterly overwhelmed. There are many books, training classes, blogs, web sites, etc. that will tell you "How to" do things in SharePoint. But, try to find resources on "What do I use it for" and you'll be amazed at just how few results you can find that actually tell you anything.

Dux has done a great job in giving a practical example of an "every day" use of this wonderful product. I thought the book was very easy to follow with a good mix of project management methodology and theory along with a healthy helping of how to apply it to SharePoint. The workshop exercises were easy to follow - even for my most techno-challenged PMs. And it reminded them a couple of times that they needed to actually follow good PM methods they had "forgotten".

In all, I recommend this book to anyone that uses, administers, designs, develops, or architects in the SharePoint world. Even if you don't learn anything about SharePoint or Project Management, it is a great resource to show to others.

I also hope this serves as an example of what is really needed in the SharePoint arena - a gap other authors will hopefully fill - Practical uses for SharePoint.

Thanks, Dux.
