Take a deep dive into Teams and all its distractions in our whitepaper.
Learn how to design, apply and maintain our game-changing structure to avoid the pitfalls.
Microsoft Teams brings together communications, collaboration, files, and information. Users love it, but without a deliberate approach to design and governance, Teams can quickly grow and create new silos of info.
By default anyone can create a team (and its associated SharePoint site). This leads to multiple Teams and confusion about where to work
“Where did we work on that report?"
As use grows over time info gets compartmentalised & mistakes happen
By default Team owners & members can change key settings on the SharePoint sites - this can make it harder for users to use and even access this info
Personal or sensitive information held in Teams can become a ticking time bomb. Is content being held in Teams that should have been disposed of or secured?
All of the above raises risk and potential liability for indefensible disposal, not to mention making it even harder to gather the info needed for OIA, LGOIMA or Ministerial requests
You and others getting disillusioned and returning to email, meetings, and file share use
