What You’ll learn from this workshop 

This workshop will unlock concrete strategies, practices and tools to help you avoid those "ticking time-bombs" that can be created by undertaking a Teams rollout at break-neck speed.


For security, identify sensitive information types, use Azure Information Protection for classification and encryption, and implement data loss prevention policies.

Use sensitivity labels to set privacy, external sharing, and conditional access policies for Teams.

Promote executive sponsorship and ongoing success stories to gain buy-in and communicate value.

Utilize tools like Compliance Manager, Content Explorer, and Activity Explorer to assess current state of sensitive data.

For compliance, determine data lifecycle requirements and implement retention policies, disposition reviews, and integration with sensitivity labels.

Define a clear governance strategy with input from stakeholders to set policies and procedures for Team usage. This provides a foundation for short and long-term success.

Adoption requires understanding change impact through personas and scenarios, communicating "what's in it for me," and continually enhancing training and support.

Allow guest access with controls like access reviews, restrictions, and expiration. Educate team owners on responsibilities.

Consider minimal team owner requirements for redundancy, security, and distributing workload. Have a process for handling ownerless teams.

Consistent naming conventions and templates using provisioning tools help manage Team creation and prevent duplication.

Because we've all worked under incredible pressure to roll out Teams at record speeds, we may have laid down a few 'tactical decisions', 'gotchas' or 'ticking time-bombs' that we need to address before they come back to bite us!

This Teams Workshop has been designed for two sets of people:

  • Those who have already implemented Teams and now need to retrofit some "best practices" to get it back under control!
