How Social Tools Are Changing The Way We Collaborate [Future Of Work]
As PSFK explores social business tools, we ask our readers to tell us how they manage their workflows.
How can we keep track of collaborative documents and open projects with a growing number of contributors adding to the workflow?
Digital platforms are pushing work from the tactile and analog worlds of solitary ownership, towards collaborative work processes, making it difficult for a single individual or a whole collective to coordinate tasks. The old in-box and out-box strategy no longer effectively helps organize day-to-day work, as to-do lists have become over burdened with multiple steps, contributors and moving parts. Innovative business tools are mimicking the existing social platforms by deconstructing the top-down management of workflows and making it a more collaborative process. With more co-workers working on the same documents and files, clear communication is becoming paramount for delivering a successful end product.
