Higher Education CoP July 15 2020: Microsoft Teams for Project Managers

Toolbox Café:  Microsoft Teams for Project Managers


As organizations have adjusted to working remotely, it has accelerated the adoption of software platforms that provide both synchronous and asynchronous collaboration capabilities for distributed teams.  At the Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI), the organization has increased usage of Microsoft Teams to maintain momentum on existing research programs and pivot to focus COVID-19 research as well.  Microsoft Teams has many features that project teams can utilize to plan, execute, monitor and control their projects.  Examples of these features will be demonstrated such that attendees can consider which ones could provide benefits to their project teams and allow them to tailor the platform to meet the unique needs of their organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the interface/features of MS Teams
  • Learn how to use MS Teams to plan, execute, and monitor & control projects
