SharePoint 2007 offers a bevy of improvements, from content management to workflow to UI design, which strive to
ease the pains of collaboration and decision-making. Before diving into Visual Studio 2005, or the new SharePoint 2007 Designer, developers need to know what they are building.
In Your Collaboration Strategy: Ensuring Success, the inaugural chapter of Essential SharePoint 2007: Delivering High-Impact Collaboration, readers discover what goes into the planning stages of SharePoint 2007 application development. This planning involves identifying the key stakeholders and business objectives, crafting a governance process that outlines who will be using what, and determining the best ways to design, deploy and maintain the SharePoint 2007 application.
