Are you in the starting blocks and about to implement Microsoft Teams?

Before rolling out a new product you should always familiarize yourself with the product’s functionality, benefits and potential shortcomings.

Once you have done this, you can plan how it will be rolled out, how education should be conducted and last but not least, how it should be managed.
