About the workshop:

Teams is tightly integrated with other Office 365 applications, such as Groups, SharePoint and OneDrive. Because it does not operate in a vacuum, it is important to also talk about governance for Office 365 in the whole at governance for Teams.

But if that’s the case, why is your organisation’s user adoption rate for these solutions so much lower than it is for Outlook?

The truth is email is ingrained and changing user habits is difficult. Studies show that only about 34 percent of users are willing to use new technology roll-outs within the enterprise.

The team will share insights into the adoption and governance best practices that actually move the needle and help positively impact organisational culture.

Join our workshop to learn how to:

    Make It Easy for Users to Do the Right Thing

    Teams is tightly integrated with other Office 365 applications, such as Groups, SharePoint and OneDrive. Because it does not operate in a vacuum, it is important to also talk about Governance for Office 365 in the whole at Governance for Teams.

    Governance is not about limiting freedom. The point is to be able to manage Teams while removing chaos and sprawl so users can work in a compliant fashion that does not affect their day to day productivity.

  • Data Cycle

    Drive user momentum quickly and sustain user adoption

    To realise maximum benefit and business outcomes with Teams, users must actually use it. Firstly ensuring quick win on Microsoft Teams is important, find out how to find your champions (people or departments) who can trial and evangelise Microsoft Teams on your behalf.

    However, initial excitement tends to wane and users easily revert to old ways of working. Learn how to encourage user adoption and maintain excitement for Microsoft Teams with an ongoing adoption plan from CEO to firstline workers in your organisation.

  • I Archive Data

    Facilitate Leadership Buy-In

    Everyone’s got a job to do – including your executives. A person’s desire to adopt and use a work tool is only going to be as strong as the tool’s ability to produce results.

    Facilitating leadership buy-in and engagement is important and cannot just be lip-service saying “ Hey, we’re going to use Microsoft Teams. We’re digitally transforming. We’re going to use all this goodness. But that doesn’t apply to me because I’m C-level. All I need is my iPhone and my email.” Learn how to get leadership involved, brought in and taking advantage of the technology – essentially having your leaders become good role models to the rest of the organisation.
