Modern Collaboration in Team & Projects Powered by Office 365 – Part 1 & 2 

Office 365 is the collaboration toolkit for businesses. We can choose between SharePoint, Office 365 Groups, Yammer and Microsoft Teams.  Choice can be good but doesn’t necessarily make our lives easier. Jasper Oosterveld, Microsoft MVP & Cloud Consultant, is going to take you on a three-hour journey through the Office 365 collaboration landscape. After this workshop, you have a clear understanding of the different tools and how these connect with each other. Making a choice has become a little bit easier.

  • Watch valuable demos to gain insights in the functionality of the collaboration tools within Office 365,
  • Be more confident in picking the Office 365 tools for you or your customers.



Benchmark Your Digital Workplace

In this workshop you’ll assess your own digital workplace and do some strategic thinking about where you need to be. Guided by ClearBox’s unique digital workplace framework,  I’ll explain what each of the assessment criteria mean and you will score your own organisation.  I’ll also show examples of what ‘good’ looks like in some of the leading organisations to help calibrate the evaluation. This will create a unique profile for your organisation and a set of averages from the room to give you a baseline. You’ll also be prompted to think about your future needs and what it will take to get there.

Please bring a laptop or tablet so you can take part in the scoring process.

Key takeaways:

  • You’ll get a strategic view of your digital workplace profile as a take-away chart,
  • We’ll share the average scores so you can benchmark your levels against others,
  • Attendees will be prompted to think about future needs and where to focus efforts,
  • There will be actionable advice on how to make improvements.
