Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and the Post-COVID World of Work
"Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by ignorance."
Over the past five years, organizations adopted Slack, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams in droves. Think of COVID-19 as pouring gasoline on the fire. The pandemic didn't start a trend as much as it accelerated an existing one.
Unfortunately, far too many of us mistakenly view these applications as Email 2.0. As a result, we are missing out on extraordinary opportunities to create more collaborative work environments, increase organizational transparency, reduce manual work, make our work lives less stressful, redefine core business processes, and much more.
Blame ignorance, not malice. We have lacked a holistic framework to understand the remarkable power of new collaboration technologies, much less unleash them. At least until now.
In Reimagining Collaboration, award-winning author and recognized technology expert Phil Simon provides this essential framework. He advances a new, bold, and holistic model of work-one based upon hubs and spokes. No theoretical text, Simon offers concrete tips for companies and groups on how to transform the way they work.
