Available Now! Conversational Teams & Teams for Managers Books

Published 12-12-2019 05:00 AM 9,239 Views

We are happy to announce the availability of two important books for expanding usage of Microsoft Teams.  In this digital age it's important to remember that many people like to have a physical guide for their new experience!  Both books are affordable and our Conversational Geek book is short and the perfect leave behind at internal events for the launch of Microsoft Teams.  Use them both to deliver 100 & 200 level training content to your people.  And yes, both are available in digital format.  Here's more about each text:

@Karuana Gatimu, thanks I will take a look at these.  FYI, the link to the website for bulk copies doesn't work as it has two spaces at the end and they show up as %20 twice.


Thanks for sharing Karuana, I'd like to open the invitation up for others to share their thoughts on the book too.  It was a great opportunity to work with my fellow colleagues and USE Microsoft Teams to collaborate and create the book on Microsoft Teams WITHIN the platform itself.  It gave us an idea of the immense scope of collaborative activities that can all be done within it and a story to share with others.  The framework within the book is a way to approach your organisational teams to consider the 'why' and the 'how' of teamwork and then structure the design of the Teams and Channels around business problems.  I like to view it as a conversation starter to have business teams refocus their thinking and questions away from the tool itself initially and more on the problem they're trying to solve.  Everything starts there - the tool is flexible enough to customise around this.  


@Jeffrey Allen thanks for alerting us to this.  Try this link: https://teamsbook.info/ for bulk purchases.


Hello everyone, just would like to add that any purchases of this book from now until Australia Day (26 Jan 2020), proceeds will be going towards the Australian Bushfires which have devastated lives, communities and property.  I'm so glad that our company Adopt & Embrace, a B-Corporation is assisting in this small way to support those who need it most at this time of crisis in our country.  Thanks in advance.

The link for "Conversational Microsoft Teams" does not work.  Additionally, how can we purchase the two books in digital format?
