and Manage your Dynamics Implementation using Sure Step Resources led by Jon Stypula Microsoft Sure Step is a full lifecycle implementation methodology for all Microsoft Dynamics solutions. Originally developed for partners to increase their effectiveness and success, it is now available to customers via CustomerSource.  Knowledge of methodology means you can more effectively manage an implementation yourself or at a minimum be better prepared for a partner led implementation reducing overall costs.   In this short 4 hour class we will explore The Sure Step methodology that includes the following resources:

  1. Methodology content – A flow of implementation activities that lead from the initial business diagnosis through implementation and hand off to operations.
  2. Tools and templates – Sample documents and document structures to help guide the project activity and system configuration.
  3. The Sure Step application – A presentation interface for the Sure Step methodology that helps you to navigate and apply the methodology and adapt it to your unique requirements.
  4. Community resources – Links to other resources available in the Microsoft Dynamics community.
