If your business could make money based on its process, you’d never need to worry about results. Unfortunately, things don’t work that way. You need to bring a product or service to market and sell it in order to make enough revenue to continue doing business. With the results-based nature of things, it becomes essential for the good of your company that you optimize your team’s ability to get things done. Today, we’ll talk a little bit about how collaboration gets better when your team is organized.
Before we get into some technologies that can help your team collaborate better, we thought we’d touch on organization. We all have that person that works at our company that seems to have things laying all over the place, papers stacked up high on the corner of the desk (or worse yet in a common area), and overall it just seems as if they don’t have any type of system. We also all have that person whose desk looks as if they’ve never been given an assignment of any type except to keep the crumbs out of their keyboard.
Most of us operate in-between these fringe operators, but no matter what you do to keep organized, it’s important to have a system. We’ll get into the technology that can provide the average worker a universal system, but really staying organized comes down to three variables:
If you are able to keep these three variables in mind, it doesn’t matter if your desk looks like it belongs to Dennis Nedry.
Nothing is more frustrating to a member of a project team than a manager that doesn’t seem to know what is going on. It not only drags the project down, it drags down an individual's morale. People don’t like to be associated with inefficiency and ineptitude. Fortunately, today technology can do a lot of the heavy lifting for project managers and team leaders. Let’s take a look at some of the features today’s collaboration software can provide to take the pressure off project managers and team leaders.
With these collaboration tools available, there is very little reason why teams should be disorganized. Sure, project managers still have to be on point and stay on top of the work, but with these platforms, that task is made significantly easier.
