I am working on a 120.000 desktop migration. I think I saw many things that is good and evil.

This is a change management project, and you can put it entirely into a PMBOK vanilla change management project. That does not means it will be easy to execute.

Vendor lock-in thru specific proprietary extensions in migration projects is the holy grail of all users that hate the idea of loosing their beloved old and costly proprietary suite. If you fix this, they will cut their wrists and bleed to death. Beware! :-)

You may publish tons of recomendations in a workgroup for this purpose, it will not avoid the need of a high qualified consultancy in migration. Whoever attemps to migrate large corporation just reading a couple of pages if doomed. You don't do change management that big without external help.

Dear colleagues,

I write to you to ask for your opinion relating to the evolution of libreoffice.
I believe that could be very interesting to create a group for the creation of the methodology of migration of 
libroffice . I propose that the group should be called "Process&  Methodology"

In my opinion, we must create the element to solve the change between MS office to Libre office, 
that is the methodology of migration / implementatin, defining the phases to developing, the 
content of this phases, the priorizaciĆ³n, and other.

From here I offer volunteer to initiate the development of this methodology, because I believe that 
it will be the tipping point,  to promote the presence of libreoffice in the companies and public 

I will be grateful for your comments
