Webisode #2: The plan
You must start somewhere. Funko’s product development team, known as “The Shire,” volunteers to be the guinea pig. Sue Hanley leads the team on a fact-finding mission, and plans emerge to build a hub site, team site and a PowerApp with Flow. Will their “dreaded wiki” survive the makeover?
Webisode #3: Empower the citizens
Citizen developers, empower the citizens. PowerApps and Flow wizard, Laura Rogers, begins work on a solution to help Funko more efficiently move its products through shipping. Ben Niaulin lays the groundwork for building a team site for The Shire – with a few change management shifts in their “how.”
