Microsoft Teams Post COVID – Stories in premature implementation

Last week I had the double privilege of co-presenting again with my wife Megan Strant at TeamsFest.

Combining our experiences over the past 6 or so months, we shared the experiences of a number of organisations that we had been directly or indirectly involved with, covering what went wrong with their deployments and what was done to course-correct.

You can catch the recording of our session here:

Teams governance != M365 governance

Teams governance is one of the hottest topics these days, especially as organisations scramble to deploy Microsoft Teams in this COVID-19 world.

The problem is that talking about “Teams governance” is short-sighted, because Microsoft Teams integrates with and relies upon many Microsoft 365 service – itself being one of those services.

In a blog piece I wrote for ENow Software I talk through the flaws of the “Teams governance” approach and views, where other consultants get it wrong, and what organisations should be doing.
