You probably don’t want to introduce your team to a new team app every year, so be confident in choosing Teams from Microsoft from a market leading software company and seamless integration with office 365 and outlook.

This seminar is conducted in an online setting specially adapted for remote and virtual teams that are bound to working from separate geographic locations and across time-zones or simply prefer to follow a seminar online versus coming together in a physical setting.
Teams will participate in a wide range of activities during the seminar designed to support understanding the software going through the different features.
Below is an example activity as provided to the teams during the activity:
Setting up a Team Planner
Learn how to leverage planner, a built in feature of teams channels, to create tactical, strategic or task based plans and “to do” lists for your team. Planner features buckets, assignments, due dates, labels, sub tasks and more! It is also suitable for Kanban and agile planning.
This event is staged online using a combination of ‘Zoom Meetings’ and a selection of other software and websites, all of which are easily accessible or free to download. We can send an invitation via email containing all instructions and links prior to the event. We highly suggest installing the relevant programs and using a desktop or laptop for full experience. Tablet and smart phone access is possible but will contain less functionality.
Scoring and a winning team is not applicable as this is not a competitive activity, however this may be implemented upon the client’s wishes to add another dimension to the seminar.
The event briefing takes place in the central video conference room. The briefing will include a short tutorial for how to use the Video Conferencing software and best practices for operating within a group video chat. i.e. muting microphones when not speaking, looking at camera when speaking etc. After the briefing, participants will be separated into teams and invited by the facilitator to separate chat rooms, then the lead facilitator gives further instructions and objectives for the activity. The de-brief takes place again in the central video conferencing room. Briefing and de-brief usually take around 15 minutes each but can be extended upon request for more in-depth analysis of team performance.
Starting with a two to four hour half day option, this activity can be expanded to an eight hour full day event.
