Basics & trends

Improving collaboration is an important theme in many organisations. Numerous tools aim to be helpful when you are trying to deal with questions as:

  • Where do I find the information I am looking for?
  • How can we connect to people who can help us?
  • How do we track that we are on schedule?
  • How do we co-create as a team, when we are located in different locations and sometimes different timezones? How do we deliver excellent results as a virtual team?
  • How do we keep my leaders, clients and other stakeholders connect to our project?

Some of the trends we see:

  • Standardisation of collaboration tools across an organisations is difficult, and many organisations are letting go of their “One-size-fits-all” aspiration (which was often driven by IT).
  • Most collaboration tools are consumer apps, not corporate systems. People want to use the tools they use at home (like WhatsApp and Facebook) also at work.
  • It is a challenge to find solutions that are most appropriate for the task at hand and not end up with a big variety of applications that have difficulty to communicate with each other.
