Workflow in 2007 Microsoft Office System (07 Edition)by Mann
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Workflow is the next hot area in Office-based technology and enables workers to share data, enforce process and business rules and work more efficiently, both together and individually. This book is written by a developer and architect with 9 years of experience building Information Worker solutions, including building custom workflow engines and working with existing third-party workflow products. It takes an approach rooted in real world business and technical problems from the Information Worker space and methodically walks through the process of building a solid, useable workflow solution.
The author challenges the reader to look at the Office System in general, and workflow specifically, in a new light and to expand their comfort level developing solutions within the Office System. The book is targeted at the serious Information Worker developer, a growing group in IT, who is interested in learning the inner workings of workflow and Office 12, not just in scratching the surface of this exciting new technology.

Workflow is the glue that binds information worker processes, users, and artifacts. In his new book, Mann details how to implement workflow in the Office 2007 system to help information workers share data, enforce processes and business rules, and work more efficiently together or solo. He then builds an increasingly advanced workflow process, making use of both out-of-the-box and custom-developed functionality.
Workflow is the glue that binds information worker processes, users, and artifacts. Without workflow, information workers are just islands of data and potential. Workflow in the 2007 Microsoft Office System details how to implement workflow in SharePoint 2007 and the rest of the 2007 Office System to help information workers share data, enforce processes and business rules, and work more efficiently together or solo.
