Let’s Have Another SharePoint Failure! #sharepoint #office365 #culture #failure

Michael Sampson - Currents

– the use of SharePoint takes place within a group of people working at an organisation that has a particular culture. I have explored quite a bit of this in my book Collaboration Roadmap , although by design that book doesn’t have a specific Office 365 focus.

Jenny Connected

We are in Week 4 of Dave Cormier’s open online course – Rhizomatic Learning: The Community is the Curriculum - and the topic is ‘Is Books making us stupid? Books, including Etienne’s, are part of our history. So I would suggest that it’s not books that are the problem.

How to do more of what works

Viv Mcwaters

Funny how things come together sometimes – an online course about decision-making in complexity and uncertainty, a book about being an astronaut, a workshop on social labs, and an exhibition on making animated movies.
