I'm working on an update to my Office 365 Adoption Plan https://docs.com/simon-denton/8865/adoption-planning-for-office-365 and I'm experimenting with new ways to present the journey.
Adoption of Office 365
Success comes in four steps connected by teamwork

Define a vision and identify business scenarios
One of the most important factors in driving adoption is to define a clear, concise, and comprehensive vision and outline your desired business scenarios.
A well-defined business vision and list of targeted business objectives will serve as your guiding light and will also help secure buy-in across your organisation.
Prioritise solutions and create an adoption plan
Once you've established your vision and have assessed your business challenges and opportunities, the next step is all about mapping the technology capabilities to your targeted business goals and prioritising the workloads that will help you get there.
Commit resources and execute the adoption plan
Raising awareness is an essential step to driving adoption as it informs, involves, and inspires your users about the business value that technology can bring to their day-to-day.
As you go about your work, you need to remember to highlight the vision and business scenarios that you identified in the previous adoption phase so you can easily convey the
"What's in it for me?”
Measure, share success, and iterate
As you move through your adoption journey, it will be important to continuously consolidate feedback, assess levels of success, and iterate your approach through identifying new business scenarios, use cases, and audiences.
After your solution launches, you will need to measure how well the technology has been received and how usage relates back to the success criteria you established early on.
Business and IT need to work together
Your adoption plan will be more successful if you work with your business as a team.
Your plan should involve the people who are going to drive and support the change throughout the organisation:
Business leaders and stakeholders
Adoption will be a measurement of success.
There are four key attributes of a successful adoption approach and your plan needs to be aligned with them.
