A bit more detail on the topics covered in this episode:

  • Provided an overview, in our own words, on just what Microsoft Viva is, and why Microsoft ventured into Employee Experience (EXP) [2:41]
  • We talk about the “SharePoint Inside” Microsoft 365, including Microsoft Teams…and then share some of our history with SharePoint [8:39]
  • The primary problem with data analysis: We need better tools and capabilities to interpret what the results actually mean [21:11]
  • You never know when you’ll need that data — so keep everything. [34:13]
  • Unfortunately, we cannot compel people to provide feedback…or can we? [44:42]
