Officecomsetup.org – Identify business needs and prioritize Microsoft 365 scenarios

This is the third post from our blog series on the four success factors for driving Microsoft 365 adoption.

Check out the other posts part of this series:

Part 1: Enable your business stakeholders with a successful Microsoft 365 adoption
Part 2: Recruit key stakeholders to help with your adoption

In this blog post I will focus on the second success factor – Scenarios, and how to identify and prioritize them, while measuring their impact on your organization.

The true measure of success for your Microsoft 365 adoption, like any change or new technology, will be the value realized by your organization from its investment. Your opportunity with Microsoft 365 is to enable the different Lines of Business (LoBs) and departments in your organization to realize important business outcomes. This requires identifying and prioritizing scenarios – which are the different ways people and teams in your organization can use the capabilities of Microsoft 365 to achieve their goals.

Get started with early wins and build on that success

Our most successful customers typically start their journey with more basic scenarios that have universal appeal across the organization:

Employee Engagement & Communication: Create a sustainable, consistent way for senior leaders to connect with employees, using Yammer as a community to share and engage, and Skype Meeting Broadcast for companywide meetings.
Bring Campaigns to Market Faster: Enable marketers to collaborate with people inside and outside the organization using Microsoft Teams as their shared workspace for communicating and sharing with team members.
Increase Sales Productivity and Grow Revenue: Provide sales teams with a centralized hub with Microsoft Teams for sales planning, real time collaboration on proposals and RFPs, and for managing their monthly, quarterly, and annual business reviews.
Streamline Business Reviews: Help finance move beyond gathering and cleaning data to be able to analyze data with Power BI, and collaborate together on the data in one place with Microsoft Teams.

Once you’ve delivered value with these more basic scenarios, you have more credibility to engage your business stakeholders for custom scenarios that deliver unique value. Think of this value realization motion as a flywheel – score some early wins with cross organization scenarios, and then move on to more ambitious areas of impact for each LoB or department. As you provide more and more impact to the business, more stakeholders will get engaged and the momentum of the flywheel builds and builds.

So, how can you work with your business stakeholders to identify relevant scenarios for their teams to adopt? At it’s most basic level it’s about identifying what the team wants to accomplish, how they can use the technology to accomplish their goal, and what the expected impact of the Scenario is. To help you get started, check out the Microsoft 365 productivity library, where you can discover new scenarios based on your industry and different functional departments.

The IT team leading the Microsoft 365 adoption at Standard Bank – Africa’s largest banking group, has done a great job engaging with the business to identify scenarios that are helping different stakeholders accomplish their goals. Standard Bank dedicated an adoption team within IT to engage with each business unit and functional department to realize unique value with Microsoft 365 in a consistent manner – i) conduct an “art of the possible” session with the team so they can start to envision relevant Microsoft 365 scenarios, ii) workshop scenarios by mapping Microsoft 365 capabilities to the team’s challenges and goals, iii) prototyping and implementing prioritized scenarios, and iv) enabling the business unit to be self-sustainable in their adoption of scenarios and evolving the solutions to suit their needs.

“You don’t need a large team and budget to get going. Dedicate some resources who are passionate about improving the business, who can get in where the work is happening and can assist business users in making the bridge between their day to day challenges and friction points, and the enabling technology that comes with Microsoft 365.

A great resource to help with this is the Microsoft 365 Productivity Library, we’ve used it to help our business discover scenarios and use cases that are relevant to them. Once they see that they can bring different components of the suite together to respond to different needs, they get it.”

To avoid overwhelming end users with too many scenarios at the same time it’s important to prioritize your scenarios based on expected impact and difficulty of implementing. This prioritized list will determine what scenarios get rolled out when.
To measure the success of your Microsoft 365 rollout, it’s critical to develop a set of criteria to evaluate the different scenarios you and your team have implemented. Identify Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that you expect will improve based on adopting your scenarios. Evaluate where you are before implementing Microsoft 365 and measure your ongoing progress post implementation. While it’s important to measure and showcase the business value you are providing the organization with your Microsoft 365 implementation, monitoring and reporting on usage helps demonstrate overall adoption levels and areas where improvement is required. The Office 365 adoption content pack is available to gain insights on how your organization is adopting the various services within Office 365.

Success stories are often just as valuable as quantitative measures when demonstrating Microsoft 365 success. Encourage your project team members and champions to identify examples of people and teams using Microsoft 365 to accomplish their goals and everyday tasks. Make sure you share these success stories through Yammer or other internal channels.

Now that you have identified and prioritized your scenarios, it’s time to create internal excitement about the scenarios and ready end users to successfully adopt them. Stay tuned for the next blog post where I will cover the final two success factors for driving Microsoft 365 adoption – Awareness and Training.

How to Fix Microsoft Office Setup Install Error 1401, 1402 or 1406?

First announced by Bill Gates on August 1988, Microsoft Office incorporates a set of applications, services and servers. The first version of this popular office suite contained only MS Excel, MS PowerPoint and MS Word for creating spreadsheets, presentations and documents. Over the years, Microsoft has brought in other exciting features like OLE data integration, scripting languages and more.

The initial release was compatible only with the Windows OS, but later it enhanced its reach to both Windows OS and Mac OS. Today, the office suite includes MS Access, MS Outlook, MS OneNote, MS Publisher, MS Project, MS Visio and more along with those already available applications. Downloading, installing and configuring MS Office is not a tedious job. A user with basic knowledge of the internet can easily install the suite from Microsoft website. At times, you may encounter an error while performing any of these operations. Though there are a number of such errors yet 1401, 1402 and 1406 have been on the top of that list.

Office Setup Error Codes with Their Explanation

Before you find a solution of the most common installation errors, it is mandatory to know what these codes stand for. Error 1401 occurs when the setup is unable to create the registry key, error 1402 occurs if the setup is not able to open the registry key and the last error 1406 occurs when Office setup is unable to write values to the registry key.
What Causes These Errors?

You may encounter 1406 error if the Office installation files don’t have the permission to change or modify specific files in the C drive. If you attempt to do so, it could also raise a number of other errors as well. The other reason could be the inaccessible or corrupted registry keys.

Resolution to Office Setup Errors

There are four different ways of resolving these troublesome issues causing a halt in the installation of Microsoft Office setup. You can choose any one from the following:

Method 1

For all the group of registry sub-keys, which are displayed in the error message, simply set the permission for Everyone to Full Control.

Method 2

In case of Error 1406, simply disable all the third-party applications (Such as an antivirus or security software) and retry installing the Office suite. Once the setup is successfully installed, enable that third-party application.

Method  3

Open the system into a “Clean Boot” state and then try to install the Office Setup. This will automatically disable the third-party application that is causing the halt in the installation of the Office suite setup. These third-party applications don’t let the setup access registry keys that initiates the installation.

Method 4

In case of Office 2007, Office 2003 and Office XP, it may happen that the license file is corrupted. This license file cannot be removed just by re-installing the Office setup. For this, you need to delete the license file by following specific instructions of Easy Fix Solution. Once you fix these errors, you can begin the Office.com/Setup installation without any hassle.
