Which one sounds like you?

Strategic success

Discover what the digital transformation of education involves and determine where you are in your journey. Understand the Education Transformation Framework (ETF), assess your current state in order to decide what your success looks like, and build your strategic plan for deployment and adoption. Stakeholders at this milestone include system leaders, school leaders, IT decision makers, business decision makers, and technical education decision makers. The system and school leaders ultimately own this decision.

 

Deployment

The modern deployment of Microsoft 365 tools involves setting up a secure identity, managing your devices, and provisioning Microsoft Teams and other apps. This process can be straight-forward, but there are times when more technical skills are necessary to move from segmented identities to a single one, for managing multiple types of devices, and more. Stakeholders at this milestone include IT decision makers, business decision makers, education technologists, and IT departments. The IT decision maker and technical education decision maker ultimately own this decision.
