WORKSHOP: Design your digital workplace on Office 365

Office 365 has been around for years already, and the vast majority of the European companies have already moved to cloud-based applications on information work. We already know the basic roles of different apps, and there’s abundance on “when to use what” infographics available.

However, in many cases, the real digital transformation does not happen with the change of the tools. Sometimes the situation turns even worse than it used to be – instead of just 1000 unread items on our inbox, we now have those same items scattered in multiple Teams teams, private chats, Yammer conversations – an yes, on email as well.

In this workshop, you will learn how to plan and implement your digital workplace in Office 365 so that your organization gets the best of it. We will cover typical pain points in governance and guidance, and walk through the most important settings. With practical how-to tips, you will learn how to create a cloud-based environment where every tool has a clear purpose and information can be shared and found in ease.
