Benefits of watching “Viva + Teams – Tough Love. How to Start with Viva Apps on Microsoft Teams”

This webinar discusses the ‘Viva + Teams – Tough Love’ relationship that many organiations experience. Szymon shows you how to get started with Viva apps on Microsoft Teams in your organisation and how to overcome any obstacles you may encounter in the process. Further, he also addresses why the implementation of Microsoft Viva projects fail and what can you do to over come this. Projects connected with Viva in many aspects are similar to relationships – there’s excitement, followed by curiosity and interest. But, in most cases, we get lost during the enlightenment phase. Because of this, Szymon discusses how you can build a process to overcome these types of obstacles. This process will help you get to a point where you will have a strong commitment to Viva apps in your organisaiton.

As well as that, Szymon also focuses on the 5 key factors that might ruin your love for Viva and how to overcome them. He explains the ways of resolving these problems, and how you can work with your team to make this kind of project succeed. The 5 factors discussed include:

  1. Viva is too complex. You feel that you cannot decide how to start with Viva, you don’t know how the apps differ, or that there are too many apps.
  2. Viva is too expensive. You feel that you/your organisation can’t afford to buy new subscriptions, you don’t have the budget (what to do if your budget does not meet the cost) and you don’t know how to calculate the ROI of implementing Viva.
  3. Viva is too difficult to deploy. You feel that you are not an IT expert, you’ve never done this before, IT is busy and cannot help, or you’re worried that you might fail. Szymon talks about using advanced deployment guides and many other resources available and how these resources can be helpful when setting up and deploying Viva.
  4. Nobody cares about Viva. You feel that your business lacks interest, IT does not care, or there is no C-Level owner. Szymon discusses the steps you should take to over come these obstacles.
  5. You don’t have the budget for a Viva project. You feel that your organisation does not have the budget allocated to get stated with Viva. Szymon talks about how you can propose a plan to your team to get started with Viva.
