Description:

Microsoft have experienced explosive growth with their collaboration tool, Microsoft Teams. This growth has no doubt been accelerated by covid-19 and the need for us to work at home, remotely.

We've worked really hard to support the needs of the business and for that we should be commended!

BUT ...

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!
  • Those planning or currently rolling out Teams and need to know how to implement governance, compliance and adoption strategies from day 1.

Would this Workshop benefit me?

If you can answer "YES!!!" to any of the questions below, you will get a lot of value by attending the Workshop! We've designed the Workshop to give you the tools, strategies and frameworks so that your Teams implementation can be well organised, secure, compliant and most of all, be adored by your employees!

  • Are your staff frustrated because you have too many Teams & Channels and no-one can find anything? [Yes / No]
  • Are you worried that guests (external users) can access sensitive documents that they shouldn't be able to? [Yes / No]
  • Are you worried that staff using Teams will cause data to leak outside of your organization? [Yes / No]
  • Do you want to start classifying and protecting your sensitive documents but don’t know how to do it or where to start? [Yes / No]
  • Do you want to ensure a successful Microsoft Teams implementation in your organization but are unsure of the steps to achieve it? [Yes / No]
  • Do you want to create a successful governance strategy for Microsoft Teams, but don’t know how to define or roll it out? [Yes / No]
  • Are you too scared to archive any Teams because you don’t know if they’re still needed or how to archive them? [Yes / No]
  • Are you frustrated because employees are creating Teams about anything and everything? [Yes / No]
  • Are you concerned that people are uploading highly sensitive documents into the wrong Teams enabling the wrong people to access them? [Yes / No]
  • Do you find it too hard to successfully manage the new updates & features from Microsoft? [Yes / No]
  • Are you perplexed because you don’t know who is using Teams the most or if it’s been a success? [Yes / No]

If you answered "Yes" to any of the above questions, scroll down below to see what we cover in the Workshop.
