My Top 15 Favorite Posts from 2017

cbuck nametagIt’s the end of the year, and time to reflect on the year behind us — and then start planning for the year ahead. While I’ve written quite a few pieces that I am truly proud of this year, I wanted to limit this list to primarily standalone posts, rather than those that we part of a series or tied to one of my research projects. For example, I’ve done a lot of writing for KanBo and AvePoint this year, but I’ll summarize those posts separately. This is a list of my favorite posts that have appeared in this blog, on CMSWire and Redmond Magazine, and elsewhere. A couple of these selections focus on specific technologies — but most of them have a broader business focused, and are geared toward business decision-makers who are trying to understand the value proposition of information  management and collaboration investments.

They’re in no particular order:
