Collaboration Framework

Silverside’s collaboration framework makes it easier to embrace a software platform like Office 365. Office 365 is frequently introduced with a simplistic approach that undermines the possibilities. Often organisations look at the tools Office 365 offers, and subsequently describes what they can offer.

Our approach at Silverside is to tailor your collaboration platform to your collaboration needs, using a colour language to differentiate between four communities: Community of Practice (Blue), Project Community (Red), Team Community (Green), and Community of Interest (Yellow).

Resistance to Change

Why is it so hard for organisations to get employees to start using their collaboration platform? Why do people not just make the most out of Office 365, when they seem perfectly capable to use Facebook? Many organisations struggle with the real efficient use of their collaboration platform. Often the focus for adoption (if there even was any) is aimed at training in how the tools work. Research indicates tools are only effectively used by 10-20% of your employees. How can we make maximum use of the possibilities? How can we get employees to want to use Office 365, rather than telling them they have to? In short: How do we get everybody to work using Office 365?

Silverside Communication Plan

There is a strong need to communicate to all employees what the reasons for a change project are, and what the consequences of a software implementation or migration will be for them. Silverside advises to use an adoption strategy that focuses on communicating not just the “What” like traditional projects often do, but also (and more importantly) the “Why” and “How” of the new functionalities. This communication plan template is part of an adoption plan for a migration or implementation of a new collaboration platform. The scope is to stimulate the usage of the collaboration platform among all employees within the next 3 months, providing relevant information.

Wanting to use instead of having to

When did you last feel really productive at work? Every day we are overwhelmed with information. Tasks are left undone, and messages unanswered. Meetings dominate our calendar. Emails are piling up. With Office 365 we have the tools for the digital workplace of the future.

Office 365 offers a lot of applications in the cloud: SharePoint sites, Teams, Planner, Skype, Office apps, OneDrive, Yammer, Stream and many others. These tools enable employees to collaborate, and find and use the expertise they need within their network of colleagues.

Many organisations struggle with the real efficient use of their collaboration platform. Often the focus for adoption (if there even was any) is aimed at training in how the tools work. Research indicates tools are only effectively used by 10-20% of your employees. How can we make maximum use of the possibilities? How can we get employees to want to use Office 365, rather than telling them they have to? In short: how do we get everybody to work using Office 365?

Change made easy

To make the adoption of Office 365 more successful, Silverside created the Change approach based on a mix of existing successful international concepts and methods.
