Office 365 provides an incredible amount of value to individual employees, teams, departments, and organizations. Much of this value is not realized immediately upon purchase or deployment of Office 365. The value is realized as more and more users understand, adopt and embrace the technology. So how do we drive faster, sustainable and effective adoption? And perhaps more importantly, how do we ensure our adoption approach scales and can keep up with the innovation the Office 365 service provides?

Join Richard Harbridge as he shares real world experience, advice and activities that other customers are leveraging to get more from Office 365 and drive more meaningful adoption.

  3. 3. Let’s discuss a simplified view of why Adoption like a service makes sense in the Microsoft 365 and Office 365 world. WHY USE A SERVICE MODEL? Adoption Projects • Typically oriented around a launch. • Typically uses point in time metrics (before & after). • “Tragedy of the commons” risk. Adoption Services • Works better with continual launch. • Works better with continual metrics. • Joint ownership and collaborative nature of a service model makes opposition obvious and public.

  7. 7. # Need Current State Notes & Recommendations Support 1 Office 365 Champion Coverage & Selection Plan Current State No, Champion coverage and/or selection plan exists which identifies champions per business unit, office, department, team, or floor nor one that outlines how new Champions can/should be identified or nominated to improve Office 365 adoption. Current Champions were selected based on their role within the different units and to get a good cross section of individuals (executives, reception area, field and office workers) Recommendations:  Ensure there is an accessible list of these active champions.  Ensure you have shared the details of how you select champions, remaining champion gaps/needs, and how users can sign up to be one in your Campion Coverage and Selection Criteria guidance. 2 Champion Commitment Guide Current State No, Champion Commitment Guide exists that articulates the value of champions and the champion’s community while outlining champion commitments and benefits Recommendations:  Draft an Office 365 Champion Guide detailing the value of Champions and their community within your organization, the required commitments necessary to be a Champion and the associated benefits. 3 Champion Fact Sheet Current State No, the Champion community does not have a fact sheet that can be provided to a champion’s manager to support or help in attaining buy-in. Recommendations:  Draft an Office 365 Champion Guide with a Champion fact sheet regarding getting support or help in attaining manager buy-in. 4 Office 365 User Satisfaction Survey Findings/Results Current State No, Office 365 user satisfaction surveys findings/results are available for leaders, managers or users to see. Currently there is no organized way to conduct and archive user satisfaction surveys and to compare with baseline data. User satisfaction surveys are done at an ad-hoc basis. # Icon Description 1 Does Not Exist: The starting point of usage and guidance. There is no plan being followed. 2 Partially Defined/Started: An approach may have been decided upon and is being opportunistically applied. The approach has not been widely accepted nor adopted. It may be informally defined. 3 Defined: The approach has been reviewed and accepted within the organization. There has been buy-in to the documented approach and the approach is often followed. The way this area is implemented is defined and/or standardized, but not in use across the entire organization. Some governance is defined but may not be widely understood/followed. 4 Defined & Managed: This area is centrally supported, standardized, and implemented across the organization. It is defined and understood/followed. Metrics may be gathered and reported. 5 Optimized & Managed: This area is functioning optimally and continuous improvement occurs based on defined and monitored metrics or feedback.

  20. 20. Building off of organizational guidance we can easily tackle the group / leader / champion level and the individual user level. Let’s find out how… Individual Group Organizational ADOPTION PLANNING HAS MULTIPLE LEVELS… Group/Individual Checklist
  21. 21. BREAKING DOWN ADOPTION… Who will adopt Office 365 and when will they adopt it? “We Need It To Be The Norm / Expectation” Adopters Coordination&Investment These Adopters need help understanding the value change provides. Why should they change? Sharing change stories, benefits, contest winners, business impacts of the technology will be important to this group. “We Need To Understand Value” Adopters These Adopters need help understanding how to change. How can they use the technology? How should they use it? Help, coaching, how to tips, training, contests and challenges help this group of users the most. “We Need Support” Adopters Early Adopters will adopt and begin using new technology once it has been shown to them, or once they are aware it is available. Making these users aware of the technology and it’s capabilities is important. Often ‘did you know’ tips and pre-launch communication can accelerate this groups adoption. The biggest need for this group is helping them share and influence others to change along with them. Early Adopters Everyone Adopting (As Fast As Possible)

  23. 23. PLANNING FOR ADOPTION… We need to be more tactical and granular to drive meaningful commitment. Plan and execute adoption campaigns! http://Office365Campaigns.com
  24. 24. PLANNING FOR ADOPTION… Developing a roadmap for adoption where we plan activities before launch, during launch and after launch is important. Plan and execute campaigns! Interest
  25. 25. PLANNING FOR TIPS… When each day’s Yammer tip is posted by a member of the tip team it ensures that these tips come from different users which gets more people involved.
  26. 26. PLANNING FOR TIPS… Tips drive users to take action, should be themed, should be pre-written before the start of the campaign, and can be easily adapted from existing ones.
  27. 27. TIPS CAN BE IN MANY FORMS… Consider the creation of Infographics or various cheat sheets that can be inspired based on the ones Microsoft or the community already provides.
  28. 28. TIPS CAN BE IN MANY FORMS… Identifying and aligning scenarios can be useful for communicating value, improving awareness and furthering understanding. Go beyond Microsoft’s.
  29. 29. PLANNING FOR ADOPTION… Developing a roadmap for adoption where we plan activities before launch, during launch and after launch is important. Plan and execute campaigns! Interest
  30. 30. PLANNING FOR CONTESTS… The goal of each contest is to get the users to take an action (upload a profile picture, download a mobile app, etc.) and those actions should be connected to a tip or tips that had been shared (explaining how to do the action and its value). Starter List Of Sample Contests can be found in the “Contests, Challenges & Ideas For Office 365” document in the Office 365 Resource Kit (http://Office365Resources.com)
  31. 31. PLANNING FOR ADOPTION… Developing a roadmap for adoption where we plan activities before launch, during launch and after launch is important. Plan and execute campaigns!
  32. 32. PLANNING FOR TRAINING… Since you are already doing a time boxed campaign consider providing targeted training sessions that are hands on and participatory. Even if you are performing training remotely if the group is small enough you can create exercises and track completion. Avoid trying to do too much in one session!
  33. 33. Having everyone in the training session get interactive doesn’t need to be difficult even with remote audiences. OneNote is one of many options. EVERYONE EDIT ONENOTE EXERCISE…
  34. 34. There is no upper limit in OneNote co-authors. You can invite the training audience or explain permissions and the importance of where you store it. EVERYONE EDIT ONENOTE EXERCISE…

  36. 36. PLANNING FOR COMMUNICATION… Define a comprehensive communication plan along with the messaging for key Email, Intranet posts, Yammer posts or communication for the campaign.
  37. 37. PLANNING FOR ADOPTION… Having a campaign over a duration of days enables greater measurement, clearer accountability, and simplifies the coordination and commitment needed. Baseline Measure Impact Measure Continued Impact
  38. 38. PLANNING FOR MEASUREMENT… Example: We can see that most sharing is happening (appropriately in SharePoint and not OneDrive). Great insight is available now in the adoption pack.
