I’ve blogged again on the CultureHive Academy website about productivity and cloud collaboration. I’ve set out some of the tools and practices that Carl and I are regularly training our clients in, and which we aim to employ in running our company. If you’re struggling with an inbox full of unread emails, or you’re losing track of which document version is the latest, it’ll be useful, I promise!
Here’s an interesting albeit teasingly brief set of examples of how arts and culture organisations used online collaboration tools and practices to be more efficient and save money.
Collaboration has been a good use of digital media for a number of years. But I suppose it’s inevitable that ‘feeling the squeeze’ is given as a key reason for looking at these collaboration opportunities, perhaps enough to bring what might have been perceived as a niche topic into the pages of the Guardian.
The emphasis in the article is mainly on collaboration beyond the walls of your company – with other organisations – although I’d argue that better collaboration can bring benefits within the team of an organisation too.
