WRK106 - Microsoft Teams - Make It Real Challenge for Government Agencies

Are you tired of attending events that overwhelm you with PowerPoint? Not a fan of mindlessly following step-by-step clicks of lab guides? Are you more interested in learning how to apply technology to real-world business challenges? Join us for a unique event where you will group together with other Microsoft government customers to configure Microsoft Teams and Office 365 to achieve specific business outcomes. The day will begin with a level-set of Microsoft Teams and other Office 365 services that our coaches recommend be the building blocks of your solutions. Afterwards, your group will be given some background of a fictitious agency facing difficulties in their ability to effectively respond to emergencies. Your group will then embark on a series of challenges where you improve the emergency response effectiveness of the agency by injecting Microsoft Teams and Office 365. Each challenge will have a series of required and optional business outcomes. The challenges are open-ended, and it is up to your group with the help of our coaches for you to decide how to meet them. At the end the event, groups will present/demo their solutions.
