Office 365 collaboration tools

To collaborate or not to collaborate? That is the question

Microsoft has recently published the results of a survey which say that rather than technology making workers more productive, it is, in fact, making them less productive and less engaged with their work, due to information overload – and dancing cats.

 

Now, when I first read this survey, it struck me as a very odd thing to publish for a company which makes money from selling collaboration services.


After I’d thought about it for a while, however, it did start to make sense – as time and time again, when I’m discussing Microsoft Office 365 with clients and potential clients, they say, “We don’t want a culture of collaboration, as it will distract our employees.”

 

And I can see their point. Along with those viral videos (such as the dancing cats), emails, IMs, Tweets, texts – for example – can all become a distraction.

 

But, there is a solution.

 

When as a business you roll out Office 365, as part of the process you need to explain to your users how to collaborate and which are the best collaboration tools to use.



And as my clients and potential clients themselves often ask which tools they should use – is it Yammer? Skype for Business? OneDrive? SharePoint? Teams? etc. – we’ve created the following graphic to help you with selecting the most appropriate collaboration tool.
