Presentation: Creating SharePoint Adoption and Engagement

At the SharePoint Users Group of Indiana (SPIN) yesterday, I delivered a presentation called creating SharePoint Adoption and Engagement which talked about a ton of different psychological and modivational approaches designed to help folks drive better adoption – or engagement – in their organization. During the presentation I was referring to books so much that I was asked to list out the books I was referring to, so they appear below:

Help Your SharePoint User
  • Drive, Daniel Pink (Review, Amazon)
  • Outliers, Malcom Gladwell (Review, Amazon)
  • Blink, Malcom Gladwell (Review, Amazon)
  • The Tipping Point, Malcom Gladwell (Review, Amazon)
  • The Time Paradox, Phillip Zimbardo and John Boyd (Review, Amazon)
  • Peopleware, Tom Demarco and Timothy Lister (Review, Amazon) [Marcy, thanks for the reminder]
  • Leading Change, John Kotter (Amazon)
  • User Adoption Strategies, Michael Sampson (Amazon) [I didn’t directly reference this book but it’s a good “cookbook” of strategies]

I’ll get reviews for the last two books up “soonish” but the others have reviews so you can get a brief summary of the core concepts behind the books so you can decide which ones to read first.
