📢 Update -You've invested in Microsoft Teams, how do you use it to deliver superpowers to your people? (pt. 2)

Jace Moreno, Microsoft Teams Platform LeadIt's hard to miss the momentum around Microsoft Teams. While we are incredibly proud of our success, we also recognize that Microsoft Teams is an entirely new way of working for many organizations.
