Redmond, WA, May 7, 2018 — WorkBoard, a pioneer in Active Strategy Management™, is proud to announce integration of its flagship solution for intelligently setting, measuring and executing strategic priorities with Microsoft Teams. This powerful combination brings business priorities and related facts, KPIs and execution managed in WorkBoard into business conversations and daily line of sight in Teams.
With the WorkBoard integration, even large enterprises can operate at disruptive speed. Executives and their teams can now:
- Use WoBot, an intelligent chatbot, to get and update business objectives, results and KPIs, project boards, meeting agendas and tasks in real time. Ask “how are we doing on the business plan?” “what are Mary’s risks?” or “What is the workstream status?” and get instant answers.
- Drop objectives and key results (OKRs) and their KPIs on progress to plan into their chat with colleagues to make fact-based decisions without ever leaving the thread.
- Have continuous access within Teams to WorkBoard’s Running Business Reviews™, business objectives and key results, and project Kanban boards so it’s easier to focus on strategic outcomes than the status quo.
- Host video calls, screen shares and meetings in Teams that include WorkBoard’s Smart Agendas™. Strategic priorities, OKRs, KPIs, risks and execution status are automatically on the agenda. Actionable takeaways and decisions are captured for better follow through.
The seamless integrated solution is ideal for enterprise leaders and teams that want to align, communicate and achieve their strategy with lower friction and higher velocity.
“Microsoft Teams is a true hub for work conversations with an elegant chat, video and voice experience,” said Deidre Paknad, WorkBoard CEO and Co-Founder. “For agile data-driven enterprises, the WorkBoard Teams integration is a tremendous results accelerator because it enables them to bring strategic priorities into daily focus, discussions and decisions.”
“Our mutual customers rely on WorkBoard’s Active Strategy Management™ Solution to activate their strategic priorities with greater speed and agility,” says Mike Ammerlaan, Director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased WorkBoard has integrated with Microsoft Teams to help customers reduce internal friction in achieving their strategies.”
