Leave a comment


Are you tired of relying on email to facilitate project collaboration? Wouldn’t it be great if there was a more efficient project collaboration solution out there? Office 365 can take your project collaboration practices to the next level. In this white paper, learn and see how you can easily facilitate better project collaboration with your colleagues utilizing existing tools that we you already use like Windows, Microsoft Office, your mobile devices and even non-Microsoft platforms. The intended audience for this whitepaper includes project teams that rely on email, Microsoft Office tools like Excel, Word, Project and who have yet to implement an enterprise project management platform such as Microsoft Project Server, but need the ability to collaborate with project resources via current Microsoft Office tools or through Office 365. Through this whitepaper, you will learn how to:

  • Utilize Office 365 to create a Project Management Information System (PMIS)
  • Integrate Microsoft Project information with SharePoint
  • Empower a project team to collaboratively share relevant information with MS Office
  • Build a project management dashboard in SharePoint Online
  • Utilize mobile devices to interact with project artifacts and communications

The intent of this whitepaper is to show how an organization can utilize Microsoft tools the average business user is already familiar with to create an excellent collaboration solution. This is not intended to be a project management ‘best practices’ guide. Rather, it is a look at typical project collaboration scenarios that can be enhanced by use of familiar Microsoft products to get quick wins for both management and project stakeholders. Far too often solutions are implemented without consideration for the effect it will have on the work patterns of the people who will use it. In order to keep the organization change impact to a minimum, the overriding theme for this whitepaper is ‘solve a particular problem scenario while keeping the technology part of the solution as simple as possible for the end user’. This download page contains: a Word white paper and an overview video. Please check out the Leveraging Office 365 for Project Collaboration Success site for additional information.
