Teams Quick Start Guide for IT Admins

Achieve more together with Teams

Microsoft Teams is a shared work space that brings many of the collaboration and communication solutions within Office 365 into a focused work space. It integrates with other solutions from Microsoft, third-party vendors, and in-house development to facilitate faster and smarter working.

Increasing adoption and usage of Teams helps organisations improve access to information and free up workers – both information and first line – to focus on higher-value activities, thus reducing operating costs, accelerating time-to-market, and fostering greater innovation.

IT admins play a critical role in the successful deployment, adoption, and ongoing usage of Teams across organisations. This guide is designed to help IT admins get started with launching Teams and to effectively apply governance planning to make the most of the deployment. It includes all the resources needed to be successful and covers:

  • Understanding Teams
  • Governance and control of Teams
  • Deploying Teams
  • Launching pilot Teams and organisation-wide Teams
