I’m interested to hear how you people managed the setup regarding Teams , sites and sharing between Teams!
There is many ways of doing cooperation between different teams! A shared team, common SharePoint sites as tabs and so on!
Anyone wanna share your experiences?

Teams at different levels that match the org structure. In general larger teams work better than smaller, so start at the biggest object within the current 2,500 limit. Out users were in multiple teams so they each had 

 

A Business Unit Team.

A Department Team

Project Teams / Support Teams

 

 

Solution
Similar to Steven at my previous Company which had a full adoption. I started going department by department, setting up a Team for the department, and bigger departments I would setup a Team, with channels for the Sub Departments, then I would have sub teams as well. This way the larger department could cross collaborate via the channels, and the sub departments themselves could stay in their silo's of work.

Once I got everyone trained and in Teams, well sometime during the deployment, project Teams started to organically be requested, so I would create these for cross department projects / functions.

After everyone was in Teams, we started a team for company goals and initiatives that the entire company was involved with, with channels per Initiative so the organization could get updates / subscribe to the channels and ask questions. Each Initiative also had it's own working Team that was private the to project itself.

Was working quite well, but now I am at another company where I will be deploying Teams here as well and expect to take a similar approach to deployment.
Highlighted
Also planned to have a company wide Team (was waiting on the ability to ignore threads before deploying) with channels for each department, some larger projects and other subjects in channels in this Team. A place company wide collaboration could take place.
Thank you! Always interesting to see how people do this!
