The missing link in Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams has become the undisputed center of hybrid work. With over 270 million monthly users, it has become synonymous with virtual meetings in business environments. Microsoft Teams’ core functionalities make it easy to connect with people around the world when and however it is needed. In addition to online timely meetings, it supports an asynchronous model of communications and collaboration.
Since the pandemic, much of the work has moved into digital channels. For most companies, this meant conducting business-related meetings using Microsoft Teams. It became a natural center for people’s work and collaboration. For easy adoption, the work is grouped into team-sized working areas, where discussion and collaboration are divided into channels based on the context.
However, looking at the people perspective of the leadership pillars – the team-sized and siloed approach of structuring information – Microsoft Teams makes it hard to know what is expected from the employee. Standard, notification-based models work well for following communication, but what about leadership-critical information such as strategic goals, common plans, daily tasks, or required decisions? Microsoft Teams does not provide any real support for employees to understand what their daily jobs are to be done.
As always, one platform and provider cannot adjust to all business use cases and support the needs of all companies. The vision is to support the flow of work by providing comprehensive opportunities to integrate to the platform and extend its capabilities wherever Microsoft Teams leaves the end users short.
Collaboration with context – reduce miscommunication
From a leadership perspective, the critical challenge is the siloed structure of managing information, communication, and collaboration. This leads to reporting the process of each silo in the old-fashioned way with Excels, PowerPoints, and other media out of context.
Fingertip is set to extend the Microsoft Teams platform to provide a solution to this problem and give people visibility to their daily jobs, by bridging work across teams and channels.
It creates a context and structure for the missing five pillars of leadership: tasks, meetings, decisions, objectives, and collective plans of success. As it is a native part of the Microsoft Teams user experience, it extends the digital employee experience to support the flow of leadership.
Fingertip is designed to be the easy way to lead in Microsoft Teams. It enables a collaborative, transparent, accountable, and documented way of leading hybrid work so there is no need for separate spreadsheets or PowerPoints for following up on tasks or goals.
To address the revolution of digital leadership, along with one of its success stories, we put together a whitepaper to showcase what organizations can achieve with Fingertip.
