MS Sure Step Event

I attended a partner event at MS Reading yesterday all abou the MS Sure Step methodology.
 
Sure Step is a "comprehensive implmenetatin methodology that provides prescriptive guidance, project management strategies, tools, and templates that Microsoft partners can use to implement Microsoft Dynamics products for their customers".  Sure Step supports CRM, AX, GP, NAV and SL.
 
What that means is that MS have provided a huge amount of presentation templates, document templates, spreadsheets and project plan templates that can be used to when implementing a Dynamics project – meaning you don’t start from a blank piece of paper.  The methodology is end to end, scalable, systematic and based on a number of modules of which yu can use some or all.  The Sure Step methodology comes to you as a web site that you host on your local machine allowing you to take the methodology out to client sites and inform them of the methodology that you intend to use.
 
The documents, spreadsheets etc may all be branded for your own company use and the web site content maybe easily changed using the supplied Sure Step editor.  The product we used was version 1 and version 2 was promised in the next 4 – 6 weeks.  The details of what’s in version 2 have not been released but as version 1 is project based and has no Program Level functionality we can maybe make a guess that MS will be plugging that gap.  Look out for version 2.  Version 1 is available to download from the Partner Source portal.
 
Anyway, I’m going to have a closer look at this and see what’s relevant to what we do at ID.
