Driving Effective Use of Microsoft Office 365

The Driving Effective Use of Office 365 Workshop is an intensive two-day in-house working session designed to help firms develop a strategy for incorporating appropriate Office 365 capabilities into day-to-day work. During the workshop you will learn what effective use looks like, and what needs to be put in place in order to lead users to this outcome. Workshop delegates have multiple opportunities to discuss what they are learning, and to share experiences in driving effective use of Office 365. It is a very participative workshop.

The workshop is based around Michael’s workbook, Driving Effective Use of Office 365 (2016).

Workshop Flow
Here’s the basic flow of the workshop:

  • An initial discussion of your collaboration strategy and previous history with collaboration approaches and technology. This sets the scene for our time together.
  • A series of presentations, delivered by Michael, on each of the main concepts for driving effective use, along with the most up-to-date case studies.
  • Discussion and debate about the various ideas in each section.
  • Individual and group exercises to apply the ideas that resonate to your firm, and work out how to implement them.

This workshop is designed for intranet managers, knowledge managers, Office 365 Project Managers, solution architects, collaboration strategists, IT decision makers, and others involved in using Office 365 inside their firm.
