Learn how to create delicious Office 365 Groups with our assorted recipes

When you are talking about Office 365 governance, you are really talking about governing Groups. You cannot understand Office 365 governance without an understanding of what you are governing.

Office 365 Groups can also be a tricky concept as creation points are constantly changing, what comes in each type of Group isn’t standard and it is not a tangible tool that users can access.

What is important to understand is that Groups are the underlying framework for how the different tools within Office 365 are connected.

Our cookbook, featuring the top minds in the industry, will review every way we know for creating an Office 365 Group and lay out how to do so.

We will also introduce the unique nature of Office 365 Groups and an epilogue on how you should think about managing and governing your Groups.

In the end, the real reason you should care about “how many ways there are to create a Group” is to understand how shared workspaces—and potentially sensitive business data—are propagated across your environment so you can appropriately oversee your tenant.
