    1. To be clear… blogs that help the end user learn how to use Salesforce more effectively.

      I’ve been training end users for years and not that I teach the Admin class as well, I see that while many adoption issues have to do with the end user understanding the productivity benefits of Salesforce (or any CRM) it’s also the design of the User Interface (UI), workflows, etc. (let’s just call it “customization”) that make it easier for adoption to occur.

      After training thousands of end users, it seems that the message of “Productivity and Effectiveness” is often lost or overlooked by the more technical aspects of the tool and all that it can do for the company (ie – the Executive Non-Users).

      For the stakeholders, executives and company to receive the true ROI potential of Salesforce it MUST work for the sales user or customer service user in the way that they work to make them more productive.

      If you know of a resource, I’d love to hear about it. If not, then I might have to start blogging.
