Evening with Microsoft: Maximizing Project Management with Microsoft Teams
Join us on July 9, at 6 p.m. EDT for an evening with Microsoft. Our webinar will focus on how you can use Microsoft Teams to manage a variety of different types of projects.
Project management tools can be great for managing tasks, but what about collaboration on all aspects of a project? Microsoft Teams has a solution for all of your project management needs.
Join us for an evening with Microsoft featuring Centric Consulting’s Enterprise Collaboration Teamwork Lead, Michael McNett, who will kick-off the webinar with a keynote on management projects in Teams and a live demo—followed by a panel of three project management and Microsoft experts who will walk you through a variety of real-life examples and benefits of managing projects in Teams.
The webinar will start with a quick overview of Microsoft Teams, but the focus will be on key areas and integrations within Teams that will help manage various types of projects, from simple to all hands on deck. Michael will discuss the key areas for project management within Teams such as Microsoft Planner, integration with third-party project management applications, and integration with Microsoft Project.
Learn about the best practices for security, governance and how Teams can fill the gaps found in traditional project management applications. Using Teams with integrated tools can improve collaboration functionality, create centralized visibility on project tasks, collaboration with external entities and partners, access to files from numerous information sources, permission management, access to the project artifacts, and mobile application capabilities.
The panel will walk you through:
- Challenges and benefits working projects remotely
- Reporting on Microsoft Teams and access sharing
- Use cases on project management apps integrated with Teams
- Scheduling in Microsoft Teams
- Security – HIPAA, Compliance, and Governance
