Are you struggling with designing training programs and communications for end users around your deployments of the 2007 Microsoft Office System and Windows Vista?

 

The Enterprise Learning Framework can help with this challenge by assisting in the creation of a customized training plan utilizing resources from Microsoft.com. 

 

Overview of the Enterprise Learning Framework

The Enterprise Learning Framework (ELF) helps corporations develop a training and communication plan for employees during Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system deployment. The ELF identifies the most relevant learning topics on Windows Online Help and Office Online for different stages of deployment and different types of users. With the Enterprise Learning Framework you can:

·         Minimize concern by preparing employees for deployment and raising awareness of the new versions’ benefits

·         Minimize disruption on deployment day by getting employees up to speed with a short list of "must know" topics

·         Select tips-and-tricks and other productivity topics to help employees get the most from Windows Vista and the 2007 Office release after deployment

 

Who Should Use the Enterprise Learning Framework

The ELF is a tool for people in, or associated with, corporate IT departments who are responsible for training end users when Windows and Office are deployed. While roles vary by organization, typical titles may be desktop deployment lead, training manager and communications manager.  This tool can assist customer deployments by:

 

How the Enterprise Learning Framework Works

The Enterprise Learning Framework currently includes learning topics for end users of Windows Vista and the 2007 Office release. Based on the criteria you provide, the ELF identifies a selected set of topics from Windows Online Help and Office Online that are relevant for several categories of users at specific stages of development. You are given a list of recommended topics with URL links to Windows Online Help and Office Online as well as suggested text for introducing topics to employees. The ELF will build a sample employee e-mail that you can modify or use as is.

 

This is a resource all of our customers who are deploying Windows Vista or any part of the 2007 Office System need to know about! 

 

Below is a sample document created using the ELF.  This specific document only includes MOSS 2007 resources, but any of the components of the Office System could be added.  The finished product can also be in e-mail form.
