The amount of people that you have to collaborate with, coupled with the data and information that we have to process, is increasing daily.
Even more so now because of hybrid working.
As a result this is probably having a detrimental affect on your productivity.
We do not have time to read long textual reports, or the constant feed of emails, various forms of messages and attend multiple, repeating meetings to try to make sense of them all, put them into context to make the right decisions.
Having this same information presented visually is a much quicker and easier way for us to see, understand and act upon.
By coupling the ability to visualise and collaborate with anyone that you have to do business with, will help you to improve your productivity.
Productive Visual Collaboration
When you collaborate with people you need to be able to connect and co create simply and easily.
Most of the time we are using various tools like email to connect and then attaching additional content in the form of documents, spreadsheets, presentations and the such like, to provide further details on what we are trying to communicate.
It also means that you need to be filing and organising your “communications” and “digital content” so that you can access them in a logical way.
The issue here is that it (communications and content) are in your inbox, or your folder, so sharing it and making it visible to everyone else to collaborate with is very challenging, if not impossible.
What is required is a visual and collaborative interface that allows you and anyone in your business collaboration network to visually view and share this information.
One such tool that I have been using extensively with various organisations and government departments is a visual collaboration tool called SharpCloud. This is further supported when using SharpCloud on an interactive board such as Clevertouch via your video conferencing system (e.g. WebEx, Skype, MS Teams, Zoom, etc.).
One of the key benefits that I and my clients have found is how it can be used to deliver many different end user applications (apps).
Implement a Visual Collaboration Framework
To increase your collaboration productivity you need to co-create a Visual Collaboration model that incorporates:
- Physical collaboration
- Data Collaboration
- Digital Collaboration
The slides below identifies the different collaborations, how they overlap and align with your strategic objectives and outcomes.
Within each of the collaborations will be your way of working, data, systems and tools and the level of overlap (integration) will vary depending on your requirements, size and complexity of your organisation and network.
Improved Productivity – Connect, Collaborate, Create and Communicate
The 4 C’s are key aspects that I focus on when trying to help people and organisations improve their business productivity.
By applying this I have been able to help organisations deal with some very complex problems and yet provide a quick and simple solution using SharpCloud.
In the meantime here is a short video on SharpCloud to get you started.
