Thoughts on a SharePoint 2007 Operating Model
What is it about "SharePoint" as a platform that is so difficult? I hear this almost every time that you get more than zero SharePoint people in a room. Quite possibly the most frustrating thing about SharePoint for me is the way that companies (not all, but some) view the SharePoint platform as well as staff and train for an operating model around SharePoint itself.
