Thanksgiving 2013 Special – 20% Off All Books (THANKYOU is the coupon code)

Late next week the Americans celebrate Thanksgiving Day, an annual remembrance of the blessing of the harvest and of all that has transpired during the preceding year. While I’m not an American and won’t be in America for the celebrations, I do think it is a great idea to set aside some time for thanksgiving. Personally I am grateful for the opportunities you have given me to serve you through my books, newsletters, reports, and blog posts, and want to do something to express that gratitude.

A Thanksgiving Offer
Effective immediately, I offer you a 20% discount on my three most recent books. This is for the paperback editions, as well as for the new corporate e-book license available for each book. Here’s the three books you can now buy at a discount leading up to Thanksgiving:

  • Collaboration Roadmap (2011) provides the overview of achieving success with collaboration at work. It includes chapters on vision, governance, business engagement, and user adoption, among others. It is the strategy book. Buy Now
  • User Adoption Strategies 2nd Edition (2012) is a deep dive into the topic of user adoption. The book reviews the problem with the adoption of collaboration approaches in organizations today, provides a framework for approaching adoption in a different way, and explores many practical strategies that can be used to encourage adoption. There is both survey data and case studies throughout the book. Buy Now
  • Doing Business with IBM Connections (2013) explores how people can make use of IBM Connections 4.5 in their day-to-day work, but does it in a way that is very applicable to other collaboration tools as well. What I hope you will take from the book is the emphasis on the processes of effective collaboration across the ten collaboration scenarios. If you use a different collaboration tool – for example, Microsoft SharePoint or Jive – the approach in the book is very transferable. And in addition it will give you a good insight into what IBM Connections actually offers. Buy Now

To purchase one or more of these books, please see the respective book pages:
Collaboration Roadmap (2011)
User Adoption Strategies 2nd Ed. (2012)
Doing Business with IBM Connections (2013)

You will need to enter this coupon code when placing your order – THANKYOU. The 20% discount applies to the standard bundles of one, five, and 10 copies (or multiples thereof). If you want to buy more than ten copies, please get in touch for a specific discounted price.

Buy for Yourself, or Buy for Another
You can buy a book for yourself, or buy one (or more) to give away.

If you need a second copy of one of my books, or want to fill out your library with a title you don’t already have, there’s a book waiting for you. Go for it – right now is the perfect time to avail yourself of my books at a significant discount.

If you have enough copies for yourself (good job!), how about purchasing one or more copies for your team, department, or a colleague. Or how about buying some copies as Christmas presents for colleagues or clients? If you place your order now, your books will arrive in plenty of time for distribution before the Christmas rush.

Offer Runs for One Week: Starting Now
This offer is available immediately, and runs for one week. It will end on Wednesday November 27.

As this year draws to a close, I want to reiterate my thanks for the opportunity to be of service to you in your work. It is always a privilege to help with making collaboration work.

P.S. If Team New Zealand had won the America’s Cup in September I was going to make this offer then, riding a wave of nationalistic celebration and pride! But as you know, Larry’s crew on the Oracle boat staged a come-from-behind win that will be remembered for a long time. Oh well, it is what it is.
