A lifecycle approach to drive successful Lync adoption

The Lync Rollout and Adoption Success Kit (RASK) is designed to help you achieve rapid, sustained adoption of Lync 2013 and long-term operational success. It focuses on the organizational readiness, change management, and user experience aspects of your Lync 2013 rollout. 

RASK uses an intuitive framework with valuable resources and prescriptive guidance to ensure that these critical components are considered, incorporated, and properly aligned from the earliest stages of your technical deployment through run state operations.

RASK is organized into 3 core components: Rollout phases, Readiness focus areas, and the Deployment readiness report. Together, these components create a flexible framework that is easy to customize according to the unique characteristics of your organization, and that is relevant to deployments of almost any size or complexity.
