2023 is the year of governance with Marijn and Steve. To get started, we asked ChatGPT for 3 paragraphs describing Governance for M365, which we used to dig deep into the practical aspects of setting up Governance in M365. We conclude that there are practical links between getting governance right that drives the success of a Good Adoption and Chan…
 
So 2023 in the country of Office365Distilled is the year of Governance.

The boys celebrate 24 podcasts this month and a year of work relaxing with the ultimate Christmas gift for the whisky lover. A quick review of the work and travel, but mainly just saying tanks to everyone listening and generally, the boys lay their EGO on the line... what would you expect...By Steve & Marijn
 
So WhatsApp is prevalent and easy to use, but it does not conform to the business management of corporate content. What’s in it for me is minimal value for the users except that you can have a continuous conversation from your mobile device to your laptop. ADKFAR comes into the mix a little, but this is a change process.…
 
Meetings are working; this is a pretext for Agile methodology and is very true today. Meetings take work, and they also take you away from work. Meeting culture needs to change, and we are back to change and adoption. In this podcast, we identify the reasons why you should NOT be in a meeting. As the organiser, you are responsible for creating a me…
 
Marijn explains Yammer’s Storylines and Stories because he loves them both. He makes a good point; this creates an opportunity for every individual to join the company community, which is essential in today’s working life as we have less chance to connect and communicate across the business.By Steve & Marijn

So, this podcast just goes to show that the tasting notes of a Whisky can be very accurate... In this case, one stating notes says intense whisky with a hint of plastic!! But this was a Whisky to avoid at Christmas unless you are out with the boys doing shots... Hey Vascu, thanks for the tasting but Steve leaves his opinion on his purchase verse yo…
 
It was an email, but it’s also going to be on MS Teams messages... seriously a great idea from Microsoft about delaying the delivery. You can now delay a message and an email to arrive at the optimum time for the receiver. But... Marijn is unsure because he thinks he is not responsible for the receiver’s timeline. Then the boys come up with some si…
 
Meeting Etiquette from a few Microsoft Screenshots identified some great points for improving your meeting habits and accessibility. But Marijn goes into that talking mode where we get unfocused, and storytelling voice kicks in... so Steve takes over. All Microsoft’s Meeting room etiquette in 3 minutes!!!…
 
There’s a sync that Steve washes his dishes in that is not what Marijn wants to discuss. He has terrible news: they want to favour the Add to OneDrive functionality. This podcast says NNnnnoooo... we like the Sync and the fact that you get a list of the libraries under your Tenant name and not included in your OneDrive folders. So guys, if you are …
 
Tasting of Gold Bar Bourbon, Steve travelled through New York Airport last week and crashed the last bottle of Gold Bar reserved... shaped in black with a copper minted coin in the face of the bottle. So it’s time for a Whisky advent episode with something very different to the normal whisky we get hold of...…
 
We are doing all this work to enable knowledge management and enhance collaboration. But this does create a point where change is required. Our Special guest Caroline Hackney introduces her baby...

So the 23rd-floor trio considers the value of int…
 
We had a few guests on this episode of Office365Distilled, the awesome Caroline Hackney from Port Houston was an attendee at the workshop presented by Steve and Marijn at the M365 Conference. The focus is on Lego and the personae they represent as M365 is rolled out to the organisation. So Caroline expands on Personae introducing Fiona and Stefan t…
 
The problem with short unfocused podcasts is that you can be more confused after the podcast than before. But as the boys touch on Sensitivity labels whilst at M365 in Las Vegas They roll through several points. You will pick up a few golden nuggets but be warned... this episode had no planning whatsoever... however, it is fun.…
 
Steve and Marijn look at Breakrooms and Steve keeps talking team rooms, because hey they are about teams… but he means breakout room of course but let’s blame it on the cold that is screwing up his head. It does get cool when the boys start talking about MS Team meeting roles and advise everyone to plan for the breakout room strategy in the meeting…
 
Marijn becomes scrooge and talks about Planner... Steve tells marijn about Humbugs, and then they talk about repeatable tasks... This is a really cool Golden Nugget that uses the same repeat meeting code to put regular tasks in place for those daily operational tasks. Marijn learns what advent calendars were before you got chocolate or Whisky in yo…
 
Lots of chat about conference seasons starting and some advice about not going to a conference and missing all the cool stuff because Mobile working never stops. Speaking engagements are discussions from Copenhagen to Vegas, and the boys get hung up on GDPR and admit they know nothing about what needs to be protected and decide it’s a grey area the…

The boys reminisce about their last months of work and explain the issues, and effectively do what they do best… which is talk… after all, they are sitting at a bar enjoying a relaxing end-of-day drink… Office365Distilled is about two guys standing at a bar talking crap… well this podcast is proving that definition right! Wendy, the dog, is active …
 
What can go wrong with introducing new features and functionality from the Microsoft365 set of applications?

Then the conversation turns to a lot of golden nuggets as areas of change risk are identified before moving to loo…
 
Recorded live from The Ageas Bowl or, more specifically, the Hilton hotel at the Rose Bowl, Southampton, Hampshire. It sounds like the record sleeve from a 1970 rock album, which is a good description of what Steve and Marijn did on a quiet Thursday afternoon during the Ignite 2022 Microsoft Conference Day at the South Coast Summit. This podcast re…

Steve brings together his series of Wee Drams about preparing for Improvement with the final episode called Innovate everywhere Innovation is not always a ‘Giant Step for Mankind’. Sometimes Innovation is introverted and focused on a small audience. We do learn that, of course, M365 innovation is driven by our own User Stories sent to Microsoft and…

These notes will be short because this EP99 podcast is simple and focused on a single subject which for the boys is very rare... Talking about Excel and when excel was introduced to the market and how Steve and Marijn thought they would have a great case for moving people from Excel to SharePoint lists and find that maybe there are not many even no…
 
The podcast where Steve has a great idea on site names and waffles on without a conclusion. Where Marijn says, ”Sorry, keep going I will interrupt you later” and then “ Hold on and let me continue” and it is decided Marijn can interrupt as much as he likes but Steve has to do as he is told… Our Sponsor Braeburn Whisky for this episode gets a great …
 
We are all looking to achieve value in our work, and M365 provides a great opportunity for the IT team and the end user to redefine the value that technology at a personal level can deliver. This Wee Dram from Steve looks at some of the ways IT and Business can work together to get the best from M365 as it permeates through the organisation. Check …
 
Marijn is excited about his Envisioning sessions to set up the company on a journey. Still, during the discussion, we wonder if it might not get people excited when it could be several months before they get to try anything. So, whilst very important, timing how you communicate the company vision might not be the first workshop you do. However, sta…

With the possibilities of empowering the business to create their own Intranet site that is based on the same template with Governance built in. Building a SharePoint site for the end user is like buying yourself a new 40th Birthday cigar lighter that is complex and needs a few You Tube videos to ensure you operate it correctly. Your Corporate Shar…

After Steve looked at Barriers to getting the information in #2 of the Wee Dram series and then was to create Impact in #3 in this episode, we look at Adapting your M365 adoption to maximise value. Business is in constant flow, and we take reference from 3 companies that innovated into different value streams. These examples, whilst mainstream, sho…
 
After talking about recently attended events we learn that Marijn likes only soft things against his skin, but the boys resist the opportunity for a fun discussion on this fact. They talk about the new news around AD and AAD groups where AAD groups can now be nested. There is disagreement about the copying of profiles and if the AAD groups also get…
 
Division of the implementation of M365 into 3 spaces... Understanding the Need: Our primary communication is speech, it’s the fastest way 2 human beings can exchange ideas, and frustrations and collaborate over solutions. Identify the current risks: Breaking down the processes that are prone to fail or that everyone understands are vulnerable for s…
 
We identify quickly that Marijn is likely to suffer a little simply because of a high-sarcasm level within the evil mind of Steve during the recording. Steve sends his apologies!! Names of Internets got a little time which represents the point about style that the team use for the project. The Style, tone of voice, graphics, and word choice helps s…
