Microsoft has published an ebook to help tou to identify what works for you.

You’ve seen the impact high-performing teams can have in business. But what if they could achieve even more? What if they had the space to be more creative, to share ideas instantly and easily across geographies and generations while staying in sync with each other?

In a world where collaboration is how work gets done, teams need work spaces and tools they’re comfortable using. And it’s up to business leaders to make it easy for them to get both.

The very nature of teams is evolving rapidly. There’s never been a wider spectrum of workstyles, there are more working millennials than ever before, remote working is commonplace, and the tools used to get work done have expanded far beyond email and phones. Teams are composed of people inside and outside traditional IT barriers, such as firewalls. They’re spread across time zones and composed of a changing cast of characters.

As a business leader, you need to make sure your organisation provides collaboration tools that suit different personalities, skill sets and needs. Because what works for one person or team may not work for another. You also need to accommodate the diverse workstyles of the multiple
generations now in the workforce. Millennials have been using chat and social media their whole lives and want the same engaging, real-time experiences at work. Other generations favour the traditional voice, email and document-based apps. All tools need to interoperate seamlessly because everyone expects the fluid digital experiences they’re used to from their day-to-day lives as consumers.

But extending modern collaboration to meet these many requirements only succeeds if your platform can successfully unify people into high-performing teams, regardless of their needs and preferences.

So, what is the right technology solution for modern collaboration and teamwork? It must be flexible enough to meet all your teams’ communication needs, become a single hub for teamwork, be customisable and stay secure.

Such a hub is possible. With scalability, app integration capabilities, ease of use, and automation at the forefront of the tools you use, you can create higher-performing teams that collaborate more effectively with their colleagues every day.

Here’s what your teamwork tools should empower you to do.
