How do you know if you have successfully upgraded SharePoint? For many organizations they know they have been successful when end users are using new SharePoint functionality to solve real business challenges.

The impact to end users before, during, and after an upgrade is tremendous and requires careful planning to mitigate unexpected costs, and to ensure that the new SharePoint investment returns the maximum expected value.

If the purpose and success of most SharePoint upgrades relies on end user readiness it will be critical to plan for how the upgrade will impact users.
