I have seen that there is a recently published book on SharePoint Deployment and
Governance by Dave Chennault.

In attempting to estimate the size various implementation options, I am trying
to understand the pros and cons of each of the following:

** Option A: Greenfield
Start from scratch, phased build out of new system, aligned with
business requirements.
Migrate appropriate content  in phases based on functionality delivered.

** Option B: Migrate then Build
Initial migration of entire system from SP 2007 to SP 2010.
Remediation of migration issues.
Phased reengineering of system aligned with business requirements.

Thanks for sharing other experiences that have worked successfully.

Working Context: The current portal  built on SP 2007 is inherently complex in an

The users are segmented based on roles. In order  to simplify the transition from
the SP 2007 to SP 2010, the business sponsor would like the project team to
optimize the experience of each user segment by priority rank order. Such an
implementation option would imply there would be two systems operating in
parallel (i.e., SP 2007 and SP 2010) during the interim until all the user
segments have been satisfactorily covered.

Has such a deployment scenario been navigated by any organization? Feel free to
share any successes or lesssons learned from mishaps.

Essentially there is no gradual upgrade from SP07 to SP10. It is an all or
nothing move. (Which was brought up at the SP2010 launch)
