Don’t expect your staff to meet a Microsoft Office 365 migration with perfect enthusiasm and seamless adoption. Resistance to change is a common outcome of a new program roll-out. Prepare your staff for implementation by tackling this potential problem head-on with proper migration communication planning. Take the following steps to prepare your staff to switch to Office 365 before launching the new platform for the best possible transition.
Deploying Microsoft Office 365 is bound to fall flat at your workplace if you don’t pair the launch with proactive employee training. One mistake many organizations make is assuming implementation equals adoption. In reality, these are two separate feats and they require the same amount of attention from the implementation team. If the Office 365 engagement rate dissatisfies your boss and you were the one in charge of migration, take the following steps to get your team on board with the new platform.
Microsoft Forms is a simple, lightweight app designed to help you easily create surveys, quizzes, and polls. In a business environment, the tool can be used to collect customer feedback, develop strategies, and educate staff.
When you simultaneously edit a document with other authors, it’s called co-authoring. If you’ve never experienced co-authoring before, you are in for a real treat.

We just hosted a remote training session for a team in New Jersey from our home base in Vermont and WOW! It went great.
Your team is up and running with Office 365 and its cloud storage solutions: OneDrive for Business and SharePoint. (Congrats - take a bow!)
There’s bound to be resistance to fully embracing SharePoint. Perhaps because your team members may not know enough about how it works.
The routines and self-created processes we use reflect our determination to get our job done. We figure out how to make it happen...but it isn't always pretty!
As your organization transitions to Office 365, you’re probably on the lookout for training solutions to help familiarize employees with the new platform – and keep costs low.
I’m always puzzled by organizations that insist on old-school training approaches when everything else seems to be moving to the cloud.
If your team is using the cloud to get work done, then it’s to your advantage to make sure that everybody knows how to use the cloud effectively. And what better way than to offer cloud-based training, aka Training as a Service (TaaS).
As responsible managers in successful organizations, we need our employees to steadily and continuously learn and improve. And research shows that’s what employees want, too.
