  • Welcome to the Future of Productivity Blog

     

    Welcome to the Future of Productivity blog! As director of marketing for the Microsoft Office Division, I manage marketing strategy and development of the Microsoft Business Productivity Platform.

With this blog, we hope to open a dialogue about how to best address these challenges so we can help organizations take business productivity to the next level.
