How to answer the question ‘Which tool for which usage?’
Traditionally, collaboration within businesses roughy implied employees working together on documents. This conception can be extended to include conversations between employees, project-specific groups or discussions about documents.
Co-workers now are able to use several tools to communicate, share and collaborate. Practices are changing and tools are more and more abundant. Is it right to build a SharePoint site for project collaboration? Or is Yammer sufficient enough for that purpose? Is Sway a relevant tool to integrate to the global Communications picture?
Such cloud services can bring new business value. They also raise the so-called question ‘Which tool for which usage?’. Following a practical approach, we tried to define the right tool to use for a specific usage, whether you want to communicate, manage documentation, gain individual and collective productivity, collaborate on innovation or business processes, and develop expertise and knowledge…

Developing usages: lean on local stakeholders
By choosing to work with Office 365, businesses delegate the design of their collaborative tools. They focus their activities on supporting the development of usages. Each product evolves little by little, very regularly, without the company having any control over the timeframe. For support teams, it is a case of getting to grips with a new approach, rather than seeing it as a problem in itself. This ongoing evolution avoids the knock-on effects of jumps between versions. Plus, in practice, users generally find their feet by themselves.
Collaborative usages are passed on by users copying what others do and users do not take the time to follow the training courses offered to them. Knowing that, project teams can boost these learning methods by supporting practice leaders to act as pioneers in exploring new practices and encouraging others to follow their lead.
How to lean on these people? How to inspire without restraining? Find more about it in our study…
