Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States

Requirements: From Beginning to Teams

Why do business users go rogue and implement 3rd party software without running it by IT?
Lack of awareness of IT offerings, frustration of waiting for solutions to be implemented, or maybe they don’t know how to approach IT with their needs:
• Collaboration
• Sharing
• Notifications
• Messaging
• Workflow

This workshop is designed to step IT Professionals and Business Decision Makers through a typical requirements gathering session.
IT pros will learn how to better gather and interpret business needs. Business Decision Makers will gain insight on how IT gathers requirements and learn how to better communicate their needs to IT.

After gathering requirements through interactive discussion, I’ll walk you through delivering requirements to our business by leveraging both SharePoint and Teams functionality. During the build out, we’ll also see how Teams and other Microsoft 365 applications can reduce application sprawl (and costs) for the organization.

Workshop duration 90 mins - 2 hours
