I just received a SharePoint maturity assessment from a company in the Caribbean, putting Trinidad & Tobago on the map of ​places that have generated data from the Model. Here's a sample of the locations where the Model has been used (it is not comprehensive because many have submitted data anonymously).

Thanks to all who have sent in their assessment data!  My dream is to see this map filled with markers!
