Working side-by-side with the Office 365 product team in Redmond, we’re delighted to present the first community “needs” survey to you. Your participation is paramount in helping the Office 365 team shape the direction of its product support resources. In particular, what you share from the real world, will allow me to engage in deeper conversation about what type of learning assets are needed now to make you more technical successful with Office 365.
To be more specific, this survey will allow you to weigh in on how Office 365 has helped your organization/customers, and how/where you get help for any Office 365-questions! This is your chance to drive the innovation of the Office 365 solution.
BONUS: One lucky respondent will win an ActionTec ScreenBeam WIDI device (HDMI wireless display – very cool)*
But why I am really doing this? I’m trying to do a back to the future and match the Google and Open Source community vibe. With back to the future, I’m honored to say this is how we built Windows Small Business Server in the late 1990s/2000s. It was all about community input and I’m totally psyched that the Office 365 product team is open to this methodology. As they say – feedback is the breakfast of champions.
Under the guise of “if ya’ can’t beat ‘em, join them” I assert (my own opinion here) that community involvement has driven some of the success at Google in the Open Source community. Under Microsoft’s new CEO, the blue badges are supposed to do more of this outreach. Who would thought that Microsoft was so open and affirming like the liberal Episcopal Church?
