Ables will be delivering the session, “5 Ways to Manage Projects with Office 365 and Dynamics 365.” Since Microsoft offers a variety of task and project management applications, understanding the offerings and selecting the right one(s) can be a challenge. Attendees will learn about Microsoft Project, SharePoint Task Lists, Microsoft Planner, To-Do, Outlook Tasks, Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation, Dynamics 365 Activities and Azure DevOps. In this interactive session, Ables will explore the benefits and downsides of each, how they work together and the scenarios when each might make sense. Attendees will also learn how to use the often-overlooked SharePoint features to manage their projects.
Ables will also be presenting the session, “Creating a People-Centric Company with Office 365.” He will provide a visionary look into the future of work and a practical guide for getting there using Office 365. Ables shares what people-centric looks like, with case studies highlighting how big data, analytics, processes, collaboration and culture need to align. Transformation is possible, but technology alone is not the solution. Attendees will learn what differentiates companies that succeed with transforming customer and employee engagement, from those who never get past the struggle and how leaders are using Office 365 to accelerate towards this goal. They will leave inspired, informed and full of ideas that will drive change, and even transformation in their organizations.
