Implementing Office 365

Learn the ingredients of the Fruit Salad Formula to successfully plan, train and support your Office 365 deployment.

It seems the biggest MIS-understanding around Office 365 is around the WHY (are we doing this, what benefits do we get) and the IMPACTS of implementing it – and also in knowing where to start. Most people do a good job with the HOW, but haven’t considered all the other essential parts that actually make using Office 365 successful.

We always get asked about this– so this is direct response to our customers questions. After 12 plus years of working through the many versions of SharePoint and Office 365 and working with many different customers, across multiple industries, we have lots of stories to tell and decided it was time to share!

We have seen the best and the worst and this is the culmination of that experience. It is real and relevant.

The world of IT (and the teams that support it) IS changing – how we implement new technology IS changing – how we adapt and mature our users IS changing.

So – how do you plan to change with it?

  • How do you approach a simple, effective digital transformation – getting the most from the Office 365 offering, while not overwhelming your people?
  • What do you do, when and how – and most importantly – why to get people engaged with this new way of working, using the tools but also making the behavioural changes you need to instil?

Using the Fruit Salad Formula we combine the different ingredients - demonstrated through tried and tested methods - and tasters along the way to make it real - - complex or simple, iterative, easily changed and usable solutions that can grow as maturity increases. YOU are, however, the final creator of your own recipe. The end result: a fruit salad that meets your company's tastes (and requirements)!

  • Over 2 hours in videos with practical examples, personal experience and explanations
  • 12 different structured worksheets to use as guides, assessments, checkpoint and planning tools

Who is this for?

This course is suitable for anyone looking to implement Office 365.

Small to Medium sized businesses: this is usually the Manager/Admin/IT roles (which as we know could be all in the same person!).

Larger organisations:

  • Project teams in charge of the Office 365 deployment, Project Managers , Change Managers
  • Senior Management - we find many managers interested in knowing elements of this so they know what they are in for!
  • Sponsors from various business areas
  • Operational roles including those trying to drive adoption
  • Learning and Development staff (trainers) and Human Resources
  • Support Roles - IT, Digital Services and anyone who needs to support the implementation

ANYONE who may need to be involved in the initial decision making around the roll out of Office 365 and related technologies.

This is not a how-to course about the products as such (we have other courses that build product knowledge), its more about the process of planning for and implementing Office 365.
