Learn the Essential Microsoft Teams Governance Building Blocks

Introducing new technology in an organization often comes with a fear that people won’t adopt it. A mix of resistance to change, combined with differing levels of digital dexterity can leave users hesitant to make the switch. On the opposite side, mass adoption with unlimited use can mean high adoption initially and then decline in use as the tool becomes chaotic.

Too many duplicate, redundant and empty Teams create an unorganized and hectic Teams environment. Suddenly the technology designed for simple collaboration becomes difficult to navigate and employees waste time finding information.

The secret to a controlled Teams environment is proper Teams governance. This is a task that often falls to IT and can seem daunting when there’s no guidance. Susan Hanley, Microsoft MVP, has a tried and tested formula for building a governance plan that works. With this guidance, your IT team will have a clear path to implementing Teams security and control.


Simplified and Enhanced Teams Usage

During this webinar Powell Software also discusses how Teams governance tools can simplify things further, allowing company-wide implementation of rules and processes. Anthony McGinnis, Senior Solutions Engineer for Powell Software North America, explores how IT can implement best practices easily with Powell Teams.

If you’re struggling to control the Teams environment for employees, this webinar will equip you with the information and tools you need.
