DMC to Lead Team Collaboration Workshop at Microsoft’s Midwest Headquarters

DMC will be leading an executive breakfast workshop on March 16, 2011 at Microsoft's Midwest Headquarters in Downers Grove, IL. The event will focus on making the switch to a collaborative company culture and applying technology like Microsoft SharePoint to achieve your business goals.

As the Heath brothers (authors of Made to Stick and Switch) say, “To make a switch, you need to script the critical moves!” DMC will assist all attendees in creating a personalized playbook with a concrete action plan to establish a culture of collaboration.

The complimentary event's agenda includes:

  • Breakfast and networking time with other business leaders
  • Strategies to foster your organization’s “switch” to a culture of collaboration
  • Creation of a personalized playbook to help your teams embrace collaboration
  • A blueprint for establishing governance for collaboration tools like SharePoint
  • Tips for avoiding common pitfalls when planning a SharePoint collaboration portal
  • Share stories of collaboration successes and failures with other business leaders

With over 100,000,000 world-wide users, Microsoft SharePoint has emerged as the leading collaboration platform for business. “Storing documents in a platform like SharePoint is only a small step towards establishing a culture of collaboration,” says Rick Rietz, DMC’s Director of Consulting Services who will lead DMC’s Executive Breakfast Event. "This workshop will focus on defining other essential actions that need to be taken to foster team collaboration."

This event is ideal for business leaders who are responsible for leading teams and making collaborative change take hold in their organization.

The workshop will take place on March 16, 2011 from 8:30 am to 11:30 am at Microsoft's Midwest Headquarters in Downers Grove, IL (3025 Highland Pkwy # 300).
