Mine useful content related to the client market

Discover applicable information and subject matter experts relevant to your client’s market surfaced by your network on Delve. Delve helps you discover information that's likely to be most interesting to you right now.

Delve Boards surfaces  and shares related documents. Search for a Board about a particular market sector. Boards are open to everyone in your organization, but if a Board has documents that require specific access, you won't be able to see them. Only content you are allowed to see will surface.

Join cross-company conversations about specific market trends

Chances are very good that a message, a file, or a colleague has information that may be useful in understanding your client's market.

You can gather more intelligence and identify potential impacts on the client’s business strategy by monitoring trends in Yammer and searching group conversations. Yammer is an enterprise social network where coworkers share information across teams, and organize around projects. You can start a new conversation, or join an existing Group conversation.

Create a client-market playbook

When you've uncovered a swath of useful information, you can organize your emerging client-focused insights in a digital workbook using OneNote. OneNote is a digital notebook, meaning your notes go with you, wherever you go. OneNote automatically saves and synchronizes your notes so you can focus on your thoughts and ideas.

Prepare an impressive and informed client kick-off presentation

Impress the client at the kickoff meeting with a polished introductory overview including dynamic charts of industry trends created with Sway. Sway is an app from Microsoft Office that makes it easy to create and share reports and presentations. Start by adding your own text and pictures; with Sway, you’re not limited to picking a predesigned template that makes your presentation look like everyone else’s, and you don’t have to have any design skills to transform and showcase information in modern, interactive, and attention-getting ways.
