Smarter collaboration with social technology

Digital collaboration reinvented.

Social technology has been available for a number of years, yet today many organisations are failing to exploit its full potential. The technology is usually not the problem. Many of us have never learned to collaborate digitally. This is also rarely part of a training on Teams, Slack, Yammer, Jive, ... These trainings are usually limited to a 'button training' where only the operation of the tool itself is taught.

How do you make the difference?

Focus on new skills, not Forget tool training.┬áThe tool should be almost invisible.┬áLearn to converse digitally as a team or as a group. This requires a different kind of support. Give people room to get used to digital communication. They need to build confidence in this way of communicating before you see the first collaboration results.

Digital collaboration in a team

 

Teamleden naar een toolopleiding sturen is vergelijkbaar met indidivuele voetbalspelers enkel baltechnieken aanleren. Hierdoor win je geen match. Je hebt een team nodig dat op elkaar ingespeeld is. Dat vergt ploegtraining. Hetzelfde geldt voor digitaal samenwerken. Teamleden moeten op elkaar ingespeeld geraken om efficiënt digitaal samen te werken.

Digital networking in an organisation

 

Where you happen to meet colleagues in the office at the water cooler or you just bump into someone, you have to consciously set up digital meeting places in the digital world, also known as 'communities'.
