Create, coordinate and collaborate with Microsoft Teams.

The powerhouse Microsoft Teams collaboration app has been purpose-built for the modern workplace and has been designed specifically to address the need for a platform that provides all Office 365 collaboration tools in one place, with functionality to bring in other third-party apps to the platform as well via tabs, connectors and bots.

When you hear a term like “the modern workplace” bandied around, it’s pretty natural to just think “latest tech”. But the modern workplace idea is essentially built around people finding better ways to work and communicate as groups, rather than about the technology that they’re using.

Teams is the fastest growing application in Microsoft’s history. It supports 44 languages and has 500K+ organisations actively using the application globally. Teams lets you quickly pull together a team with people inside and outside your organisation, chat with others to drive fast and inclusive conversations, securely share and coauthor documents, and iterate on projects.

However, ensuring success and real productivity through team-based collaboration requires strategic preparation, engagement and follow-up across the planning, implementation and scale-up phases of transitioning to Teams.

“Collaboration via Microsoft Teams represents a fundamentally different way of working. Success with Teams is dependent less on the technology and more on people and engagement, which is far more complex!” 

In the preparation and planning stages you will need to:

  • Ensure you have the right people in place within your business to champion your move to Teams.
  • Ask the governance, privacy and security questions up front.
  • Ensure you technical environment and systems are optimised to support the Teams experience.
  • Fully understand the features available through Teams and how they might impact your business processes.
  • Communicate and engage with your staff for buy-in and adoption success.
  • Get some early adopter on-board and give your team a go!
  • Make sure you allow collaboration and work processes to deliver real work/life balance gains.
