Knowledge Management Series - Introduction to Viva Topics
Autumn came and went. Christmas and the end of the year came and went. 2021 started but still there was no sign of Project Cortex.

Now we know the answer and the answer is Microsoft Viva. And I like it.

Last week, myself and my fellow co-hosts of GreyHatBeard were joined by Luise Freese, Vesa Nopanen and Karoliina Kettukari at Collab Days Munich/Vienna as we shared our thoughts on the etiquette of Microsoft 365. It was a fun format with plenty of chance to laugh at the same time as attendees picking up some great ideas as we ran through three questions that each person had 90 seconds to answer.
