As Healthcare and Life Science organizations look to increase their collaborative capability while adhering to regulatory requirements Microsoft Teams has become an increasingly attractive solution. With built in, industry leading, security and compliance capability Microsoft Teams can enable physically disparate teams to effectively collaborate far more efficiently than in the past. As with any new solution though there can often be user trepidation when faced with something new.

On a recent customer onsite, I had the opportunity to not only showcase the capability of Microsoft Teams but to further discuss best approaches for initially implementing with non-technical teams. The approach we discussed, and that I have seen work fairly seamlessly with customers was a three pronged approach; Baby Steps, Channel Conversations, and Iterate and Innovate.

In this Michael on the Go I am joined by my new wonder Pup Stella as I discuss initial implementation of Microsoft Teams by 1- Taking Baby Steps 2- Channeling Conversations 3- Iterating and Innovating.

It has been a culture shift in O365 for my org as many are used to the product release schedules where they have time to read over all the changes and put together best practices for the tools many times before they were even released. Now with O365 releasing updates every day that philosophy is dated and not sustainable.

 

The iterate and innovate tip is especially on point. Have to be willing to see the use case for the tool, use it for that use case, and innovate as you go. Precisely what we did for Teams, and is the direction we are going with implementing VSTS. Succeed with the low hanging fruit that is immediate improvements and slowly implement the rest of the awesome features as we go.

 

Nice video!

Thanks Carl! 

The technology part is truly the easiest part. The culture shift is the real nut to crack as you have highlighted and great to hear how you and your org are approaching things. Grab the low hanging fruit and then use success to fuel success. :)
