Microsoft CRM MVPs Lindstrom and Sewell Develop Several Chapters for Book
Greenville, SC - - October 4, 2012 - - Microsoft CRM MVPs Joel Lindstrom and Scott Sewell, consultants with Customer Effective, developed significant content for the recently published book entitled The CRM Field Guide: How to CRM like an MVP with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Lindstrom and Sewell are long-standing Microsoft MVPs and widely recognized as experts within the Microsoft CRM community. A Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) freely shares their deep knowledge and real-world experience by making exceptional contributions to technical communities.
The CRM Field Guide contains insights from many CRM MVP contributors and is intended to be a book you pick up over and over again while using Microsoft CRM. This book not only tells you how to use Dynamics CRM, it also provides an overview of best practices gained from the combined experience of many of the best minds in the CRM community. Lindstrom and Sewell combined their efforts to write five of the book’s twenty five chapters.
“Both Joel and I enjoy sharing what we’ve learned through experience at Customer Effective,” says Sewell. “Participating in this project along with our fellow MVPs was a natural choice. The focus of my chapter grew out of the experiences speaking at CRM User Groups and the Customer Effective Customer Conferences.” Sewell continues, “Many users are challenged with getting their arms around the start-to-finish process of CRM report writing. A core value of Customer Effective is to simplify the “how” of technology to drive value on the “why” of the business’s needs. I wanted to share a practical, best-practice-driven approach on getting started and becoming productive using CRM as quickly as possible.”
Lindstrom adds, “One of the most frustrating things to someone who is trying to learn a new skill is that many times the ‘experts’ at that skill are adverse to sharing knowledge or are adversarial to people who are trying to learn that skill. One of the most rewarding things about being part of the MVP group is interacting with other people who are very bright and very good at what they do, but are also genuinely interested in helping others become more successful with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. I think that this spirit really comes through in the content of The CRM Field Guide.”
Lindstrom went on to say, “Most of the authors of the book are very busy people who don’t have a lot of time on their hands, but we are united with a common love for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. We all share a desire to see the CRM community grow and for others to be successful. It’s that spirit that shows in every chapter of this book.”
The book can be purchased in both print and e-book varieties online via the website http://www.crmfieldguide.com.
