Are There Any Teams Guiding Principles? For Long-Term Department use OR Short-Term Project Use....

Not applicable

Hi Microsoft Community / Teams Experts,


I am the senior manager for a R&D department at a large CPG company.  We have the full Microsoft Office 365 suite at our fingertips and I was hoping that somebody would be able to point me to a blog, website, or provide your perspective around deploying Microsoft Teams.


I know that Teams is a open collaboration hub that is meant to foster quick setup of a centralized place for team communication, file sharing, meeting initiation, etc.


However, I am wondering if there is anything that can be done up front (while our Team's environment is so new and clean) that will prevent people from creating a deluge of Teams and categories. 


Whether it be for long-term cross department collaboration or for a short-term purpose during a project's execution, is it best to set up few Teams with many categories?  Or is it better to have many Teams with fewer categories?


Any insight, tips and tricks, etc. would be GREATLY appreciated.  I am presenting the new capability to my organization next week and could use any advice on this new technology.


Thank you,

Doug Doerhoff

Hi @Deleted, Our R&D department is getting ready to pilot Teams so I'm curious to hear if you made any progress or discovered any learnings since your post. Thanks!
