After a thought provoking perspective on Yammer was shared, I came together with 9 other Microsoft MVPs to answer the question, Why Yammer?
The origin story is all about community professionals coming together and sharing knowledge on one of our favourite platforms, Twitter. Rather than leaving it there I thought a collaboration of the YamFam to answer the question of Why Yammer would benefit everyone. Even better that Peter was keen to get involved and hear our perspectives.
After a couple of weeks of document sharing, Twitter DMs and emails 10 of us came together for the final post. Collaborating with 10 people across multiple time zones is not easy, but the results make it worthwhile.
Rather than publish it here on my personal blog, I shared it on LinkedIn, the Microsoft Tech Community and REgarding 365 to reflect the nature of the community collaboration.
