Are you looking for best practices to ensure a better outcome for your Microsoft Office 365 project? Learn how to create your own user adoption plan resulting in maximum adoption of your Microsoft Office 365 platform, using our PACE methodology. 

This workshop is intended for anyone responsible for implementing Microsoft Office 365 / SharePoint. Are you a project manager, IT- manager, change practitioner, trainer, or IT professional who needs to ensure a succesful adoption? Then this workshop is for you!

The workshop will take place on 28th November 2019. The location is Rivium Quadrant 75/5 2909LC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 

About the workshop

The world is changing. The nature of work is changing-organisations, tasks, roles and business models. Markets are changing. But you know this. You hear it every day. You live it every day. You probably struggle with the relentlessness of it every day.-the magnitude, ferocity and complexity of it all. 

At Silverside, we have developed a way to make change happen. Happen well. Happen appropriately. Happen in the right direction, for the right reasons, and with the right outcomes. This struggle was the genesis of our PACE methodology-a structured approach for guiding practitioners to motivate and equip their people to collaborate more effectively using modern tools. 

The PACE methodology is based on one key insight: adoption of modern tools is not about one thing. That’s because there are multiple things that work together to create the context and cadence of change. Pulling together the insights across those items is essential in getting going, making progress and achieving the right outcomes over the duration of the change initiative. Starting is not about any one of those factors (and other related factors or elements); it is about all of them. It’s about developing an understanding of each factor individually, and at the same time being able to see the interrelationships and dynamic between them all. 

PACE model

The PACE methodology is designed to be applicable to any collaboration platform you may implement, however, the technical acumen will be specific to Microsoft Office 365.

Silverside list of events never ends! 

10th and 11th October Silverside will be in Haarlem, The Netherlands to participate in the conference Office 365 & SharePoint Connect 2019. This year, we upgraded our role. We will be among the sponsors for the event, we will have our booth and Roland Driesen will be presenting the session “What if we adapt the adoption?”! 

About Office 365 & SharePoint Connect 2019

Office 365 & SharePoint Connect 2019-community edition. This year User Groups and IT Communities are coming together to deliver a community conference that will be focused on members’ needs. User Groups and communities involved in Office365, Cloud Computing, Azure, SharePoint & Security, are joining together to put together a conference you just don’t want to miss. The aim is to deliver a conference that includes sessions with interesting topics, case studies and real-life experience and solutions, on subjects such as migrations to the Microsoft cloud, driving adoption, development, search, security, privacy and compliance etc.

Not all sessions will be ‘case studies’. The agenda will also contain sessions, including but not restricted to the latest business practices, security, hot topics and the latest news from Microsoft for IT professionals, power users and developers. The leaders of the User Groups are all MVP’s and will make sure that the agenda will be of the best quality and relevant to the attendees. The conference will present news and announcements from Microsoft as well as insights into the key topics across Office 365, SharePoint Server, Hybrid,  Azure, Cloud Computing and Security. 


What if we adapt the adoption? Change approach based on digital literacy and learning styles.

It’s time for Silverside to dominate the stage with this session! Roland Driesen will be presenting a super interesting session: “What if we adapt the adoption?”.
More room (priority, time and budget) is given to the user adoption part of projects. This is a great development and makes Office 365 better used. But what if we want to bring this approach itself to the next level? Most projects still can improve in tailoring the communications and learning strategies to fit better a company culture, team dynamics and even personal preferences. Silverside, as the founder of the PACE methodology and experience with 200 customers, is proud to present the next version of our PACE toolset with a practical assessment for measuring culture, invitation to use our freemium success indicator for your change project and demonstrate our online tools for continuous learning and improving the daily usage of Office 365.
Don’t miss this session and all the other exciting sessions in the conference agenda!
