The team-management tips included having a clear vision, defining roles of each member of the team, and collaboration, which unsurprisingly featured Microsoft Teams. The productivity service, which is being used by over 50,000 organizations, was launched yesterday in 181 countries for commercial Office 365 subscribers.
