Every day when you start work – it happens.
The math --
In X hours you need to respond to Y dozens (or hundreds of emails); sift through new versions of documents and edits from team members; attend Z number of meetings and complete too many tasks or finish too many deliverables.
And while you’re trying to try to do all this, you don’t have enough time to talk to the people you need to because they’re climbing the same mountain.
Then there’s the mental toll – how can you be creative and deliver high quality ideas, new designs and new solutions to customer problems when your mind is stuck on this hamster wheel?
Processing individually doesn’t work anymore – there’s not enough time to think in between “doing” everything.
So how do you find “room” to think – to have ideas and meaningful conversations? You can do it by being smart about how you’re organizing, communicating, and engaging people. And applying the idea of “social”.
It starts with creating shared spaces – either communities or activities, defining tasks, assigning owners, setting deadlines, and using the capabilities of social platforms to create visibility and transparency across the many people involved. The fundamental work of companies happens across business boundaries, so having a way to engage and collaborate with clients, contractors, partners and suppliers is just an essential part of being competitive.
By using social cloud collaboration tools, you can make the math work for you instead of against you. Here’s how infusing “social” into your project management process can help you save time and increase productivity.
And because external audiences can easily join your communities, participate in activities and online meetings, you can tap into expertise where it is and collaborate with anyone, anytime, using the device of your choice. The result is more innovation, improved communication and increased productivity. Now that’s math that adds up to success!
