Over the past six weeks, I have embarked on a quest to increase my squadron's productivity by addressing continuity, communication, and file storage. The method by which I addressed these issues is by transitioning the squadron to Microsoft Teams. The transition to Teams required planning, as we have four major sections of the squadron, all working different shifts because we operate 24/7. It required creativity, not only because of the 24/7 ops but also because utilizing Teams was different from the traditional way in which we would solve these sorts of problems. It also required me to get out of my comfort zone. I am an instructor, so teaching others was easy, but I am not technologically inclined, so tackling a project about technology required me to push myself.
The project was an overall success, with room for improvement and growth in the future. We have transitioned roughly 90% of the squadron to utilizing Microsoft Teams for their shops and teams. We have created an easy way to communicate with each other and track goals, tasks, and projects. Overwhelmingly, the people utilizing the new system agree that it is a good move and valuable.
