Patrick started working with SharePoint in 2005. He started as an infrastructure consultant, but realized that SharePoint success is not only related to technical aspects.
His work as a consultant consists of assisting organizations to deliver SharePoint business value and create the awareness in these organizations that a strong technical team is not sufficient to deliver this added value.
Even though IT departments sometimes think “resistance is futile”, the human factor is, besides strategy, processes and vision a very important factor in delivering added business value.
