Office 365 Adoption Implementation and Tracking Guide Intro

In this post, we will take a sneak peek into Chris Hardee’s 20-page ebook on Office 365 adoption implementation and tracking. Chris has divided his guide into six sections, which we’ll describe in a couple of sentences.

How to Establish KPI Benchmarks and Reporting Plan

Chris suggests a variety of great reasons to track KPIs during an Microsoft 365 implementation. Some of them are removing unneeded applications, right-sizing the storage, and improving company communication. He also mentions a couple of KPIs to monitor, such as Microsoft 365 adoption rate, cost reduction, and training effectiveness.

How to Improve Communication and Streamline Microsoft 365 Adoption

In this section, Chris praises some Microsoft 365 collaboration and communication tools. Microsoft Teams is a project-like app structured around channels that is good for cross-departments and external communication. Also, it has over 200 connectors with other 3-rd party tools, live file editing, chat, and video meetings – everything you need for hands-on, real-time collaboration.

On the other hand, SharePoint is an intranet platform that streamlines collaboration through shared content while reducing the number of meetings and emails.

Microsoft Kazala is created with large organizations in mind, allowing them to connect to remote employees and frontline workers.
