On This Week in Lotus episode 5 last week, we were thrilled to host the widely respected author, analyst and consultant Michael Sampson on the show.  

During the conversations about Lotus app stores, encouraging user (and developer) adoption and more, Michael spoke about his new book, User Adoption Strategies (Shifting Second Wave People to New Collaboration Technology).

Given how relevant this topic is to this community, we have worked with Michael to put together a promotional deal that will be useful to those that listen to the show.

So, for a limited time only, get both:

User Adoption Strategies

What's the number one complaint about the introduction of new collaboration tools into a group or organization?

Answer: no one uses them.

It's time to do something about this complaint. It's been happening for too long, with too many generations of collaboration tools. What can we do? Become a lot better at user adoption.

Usual price US$39


 Lotus Roadmap: Enhancing Business Collaboration with Lotus Software

This report analyzes the go-forward strategic role of Lotus Notes and other Lotus software within client organizations, and argues for a much broader definition of the term "roadmap".

Lotus Notes has been around for a long time. Since its release in 1989 it has always been viewed as a “different” piece of technology, loved by some people and reviled by others. It takes a different approach to information management and collaboration tasks, it looks different from the standard Microsoft offering which many people view as being “authoritatively correct”, and it offers capability for being used so broadly across an organization that it can be put to use on many tasks, including tasks that it is not well-suited for.

So what do we do with Lotus Notes, and by implication, the other products from Lotus Software? Is there still life left in Lotus? Is it time to move to “greener pastures”? Are the new offerings from other vendors better suited to the information management and collaboration tasks that organizations are using Lotus Notes for? These are the questions addressed in this report.

Usual price US$49

for a special all-in-price.

You can purchase a copy of Lotus Roadmap (individual license) and a copy of User Adoption Strategies (a book) for the special combined price of US$59 ... a saving of US$30 off the regular price.

Simply head over to Michael's site and place your order there.  Once again, thanks for listening to the show, and to Michael for this generous offer.
