Slack to the Future

Half day
Part 1: (Re)-Introduction to Slack. Get to know Slack, whether it's brand new to you or you're already a serious ++pro user. What makes it a "Collaboration Hub"? What can it do for your organization? Who is using Slack and what are they doing on it (we'll have stories and we'll also ask for workshop attendees' stories)?

The focus of this conversation will be on getting everyone on the same page so we can move ahead with a common understanding. We'll also want to get to know the folks in the room to confirm we're having the most fruitful conversations.

Part 2: How we teach Slack to Slack employees We'll share our in-house curriculum for teaching Slack to new Slack employees, and we'll show you how to streamline your work so the right person can find the right information (or it can find them) whenever they need it.

The focus of this section will be on hands-on learning. The "Slacktualization" pyramid of maturity may make an appearance. We'll talk about finding the right balance of transparency and confidentiality for your organization, and about the MAYA acronym and change management.

Part 3: Let's collaborate! We'll break into teams and play some games to help you see what you can do with Slack. Add in apps. Create message actions. Build interactions with people and data. Try to find some easter eggs.

Then we'll review the games and reflect on what we each of us learned. There should be prizes. We'll also dig into the administrative side of Slack and give you a view into Slack's backend analytics and platform, and how they were essential parts to make the game work.
