Leveraging Collaboration "Tools"...It's More Than Software!
What collaboration tools do you currently use with your teams?
Chances are you probably answered this question with the brand name of an agile project management software program. Is this really what drives collaboration in our teams? Is it as simple as a piece of software?
The research is clear: high performing team require great collaboration. While project management software is helpful, real collaboration can only occur when it is actively built within teams. We need tools and skills beyond software in order to increase collaboration in our teams.
Attend this session to explore how collaboration impacts performance, understand what ingredients promote collaboration, and gain hands on practice using new tools to supercharge collaboration and team performance.
