As a very distributed engineering organization, our teams in Dynamics AX periodically schedule “workshops” that bring team members from our sites worldwide to meet at a single site and learn hands-on about our plans, features, and visions for our areas. The workshops are essentially run as small conferences that range in size from tens to perhaps one hundred people. Coordinating them is always challenging (and fun).
In this post I’m going to share a simple Visio 2007 diagram I use to communicate the conference schedule. There’s nothing special in terms of “smart” shapes in the diagram – just a straightforward set of shapes arranged to show a day-by-day schedule. Please feel free to reuse and repurpose.
