Book Publication Readiness and Review


MicrosoftFastTrack Success by Design for Dynamics 365 

February 2021 to July 2022 

To help clients achieve their digital transformation goals, Microsoft’s FastTrack Success by Design for Dynamics 365 team develops and distributes a wide array of collateral guiding users towards impactful outcomes. One particularly substantive piece, a 700+ page implementation guide, required careful coordination between contributing subject-matter experts, writers, and graphic designers to create a cohesive and valuable learning tool.

To achieve this, Microsoft engaged Steyer Content to edit, design, and prepare the book for publication.


For Steyer’s part, we:

  • Assembled a team of writers, editors, and graphic designers, all led by a project manager, to complete the book on time
  • Supplied end-to-end graphic design support, including the creation of graphs and diagrams while also stitching the entire book together with an engaging, cohesive layout, incorporating case studies and actionable checklists
  • Finalized copy with subject-matter experts, updating language to match style guide requirements while also filling in content gaps. Additionally, writers provided chapter summaries now published on Microsoft Learn
  • Proofed the entire text for technical accuracy, voice, grammar, and style and performed a full review of all URLs in this heavily linked document
  • Sourced pricing for publication, including cost and production schedule
  • Managed weekly meetings, establishing a clear workback with review cycles to complete the project on time and within budget
  • Provided continued support for twice yearly new editions, including edits, graphic design, and layout for new content

We’re able to take on all kinds of content management projects, whether they be books, blogs, or videos. Please get in touch and we can discuss how Steyer can support your project needs.
