The last video in the series from successwithteams.com academy is Plan, Deliver and Operate. The video is here
Ive found the content a little out of date which is the nature of Cloud and how fast Teams is being developed. Ive tried to compare the session content to content available now and highlight any difference. I suspect the online videos on Teams Academy will be updated soon.

Let look at Practical Guidance and Planning Workshop Kit
Once downloaded you will the see the following files
Recommends starting with the README file.
I just downloaded and you can see there has been some updates and there is. There only three assets it seems now. and ReadMe is v1.2
The Practical Guidance for Microsoft Teams document seems to be missing or moved somewhere else now perhaps now. I believe this has moved to Get Started Tab on Success with Teams website where its now an online version of the document as below. Guessing this can be updated as and when required and easier to manage for Microsoft.
Updated download file as of Sept 2017.
The session Recommends you start with the ReadMe File which gives a summary on each document which ive extracted below. Here the ReadMe v1.2 file extracted.
The Microsoft Teams Practical Guide and Planning Workshop Kit are comprised of 4 assets. (Says 4 assets but only three listed below, perhaps this needs updating as there was 4 before it seems in README v1 listed on session)
1. Microsoft Teams Pre-workshop Questionnaire.docx
2. Planning Workshop for Microsoft Teams.pptx
3. Microsoft Teams Workshop Decision Points Summary.docx
The Microsoft Teams Pre-workshop Questionnaire.docx is intended to be used to collect basic information about an organizations current Office 365 environment, to allow an informed workshop leader to customize content prior to leading a Microsoft Teams Planning Workshop.
The Planning Workshop for Microsoft Teams.pptx is intended to be used by a knowledgeable resource to deliver an interactive conversation to assist with getting started with Microsoft Teams. The workshop will introduce the attendees to Microsoft Teams while also guiding them through decision points and next steps.
The Microsoft Teams Workshop Decision Points Summary.docx is single asset to track all decision points and next steps from the Planning Workshop for Microsoft Teams and the Practical Guidance for Microsoft Teams document.
It is highly recommended that any individual looking to lead a Microsoft Teams Planning Workshop has been through the available training at https://aka.ms/teamsacademy, has also reviewed all the above materials end-to-end, and has hands on experience with Microsoft Teams.
Please also ensure you have downloaded the latest materials at: www.SuccessWithTeams.com.

Workshop leader needs to be prepared to guide project teams in settings up and guide the project team into using Microsoft Teams. This will help the project teams drive and understand decisions.
Having hands on experience will help drive the workshop and help drive the workshop. If the project team have hands on experience they can actually make decisions based on experience as well.
