I am presenting the session “Collaboration from the Trenches: Building out your Internal Community with Teams“. This session is meant to get to heart of the struggles with rolling out any collaboration platform. As an internal champion or stakeholder, how often have you had to do the following:

  1. Have meetings to plan other meetings?
  2. Had to remind team members to do tasks multiple times through multiple avenues?
  3. Search multiple times to find the correct documents that are the source-of-truth, if they exist?
  4. Become frustrated with managing permissions?
  5. Use multiple systems to do a single process?

If you answered “yes” to any of these, this is the session for you.

What are we going to discuss?
