At Sinova we are working continuously towards a modern and lean organisation and a high-performance culture in which we can work together as ONE team across national borders.
In the past Microsoft Teams at Sinova was built up in a country-based structure. Working in Microsoft Teams across borders was very limited and often difficult.
Therefore, to efficiently work together in an international team like ours there is a need to established tools and platforms where colleagues can share their ideas, files and projects in a secured and protected environment.
The goal is to be able to work together on an easily accessible international platform as ONE team.
Together with the great support from our IT colleagues in the different countries, and a project team co-leaded by Kimberly Böving (German IT team) as technical expert and Jérémie Coste (France IT team) as digital manager in charge for the change management, the implementation of a Shared Channel solution has been successfully finalized to give our colleagues the opportunity and space to work together sharing Microsoft Teams channels across borders.
A Shared Channel is a collaborative environment on our Sinova Microsoft Teams platform, in which communication on an international level can take place much easier than before. To develop specific projects within team working groups we are now able to use the advantages Microsoft Teams brings us instead of sharing files via email, for example.
In order to get the most benefit out of these channels, the introduction in our team will be rolled out within specific training sessions and a special ambassador program step by step.
All in all, the shared channels are a big step forward for Sinova and offer a great possibility to achieve joint goals as ONE team, to collaborate easily and to continuously grow together.
