Microsoft market research indicates that 78 percent of Fortune 500 companies are SharePoint users. Every day for the past five years, 20,000 workers have joined the ranks of SharePoint users. One in every five knowledge workers now has access to SharePoint, but that doesn't mean these workers are properly trained in how to use SharePoint.
In spite of the high number of users, many view SharePoint as nothing more than a glorified network share. But organizations who provide contextual, business-relevant training and actively cultivate a sustainable SharePoint adoption program will find those initiatives to contribute to more widespread utilization of SharePoint to address users' specific day-to-day business needs and therefore maximize the organization's SharePoint investment.
