Three Tips for a Successful Office 365 Pilot - TRIBUNE PUBLISHING
You know it’s better to walk before you run. That’s why you persuaded your exacting C-suite to run a pilot or two before initiating a companywide rollout of Office 365 — a robust but potentially confusing set of tools. Good job, but — gulp — what’s next?


From his unique role on the front lines with a dotcom pioneer in building online communities to spending nearly a decade helping drive adoption of Microsoft Office tools, Thomas Lawler has picked up a few key learnings along the way, including:


  1. Building a solid business objective, use case and success metrics
  2. Determining the best Office 365 tool for your Office 365 use case
  3. Building your O365 Pilot Dream Team


All this, plus a scintillating Q&A session awaits you!
