Q3: How has the ability to collaborate anywhere, anytime increased productivity? http://www.via-cc.at...

Warren Whitlock
we're not seeing it yet. Still too much setting up for enterprise. In SMB, it's a given
Warren Whitlock
I'm always working, and always playing.
Warren Whitlock
Once you learn to live with always on, it's FREEDOM. No one stops me from working or playing
Joel Peterson
The ability to collaborate anywhere has given my workforce more freedom and flexibility in their lives. That has increased their engagement and in turn their productivity.
Rebecca Wissinger
W/ ability to collaborate anywhere there's no wasting time, u can get things done. Multitasking like a boss.
Jerry Overton
You can get to better quality ideas much faster: No one knows everything, but everyone knows something.
Joel Peterson
Productivity is a bi-product of engagement. Meet your workforce where they live in engagement and you'll get the productivity you need from them.
Camille Brandon
@rjwissin agreed! It's the 'no excuses, play like a champion' mentatility
Goshow Architects
allows for a new way to manage your own time and deadlines. a little bit here and there adds up, without being tied to a physical location.
John Furrier
@JerryAOverton CSC is a great example of virtual workforce - love the vision they have of an "inside out" organization
Joel Peterson
Collaborative technology is the tool by which smart employers engage their workforce.
Jerry Overton
@WarrenWhitlock Yep and better collaboration lets you blur the lines between the two: work + play.
Dik_Whitten2.0
@rjwissin it also allows for people to work where they're comfortable - on the couch, in a coffeeshop, on a plane etc...blurs the line between work and home - but in a good way :)
John Furrier
virtual work will really expand as the "experience and immersion" factors kick in - only going to get better imho
Rebecca Wissinger
@DikBiz totally agree! I'm chatting from my couch with my 2 dogs in my lap right now :)
Daniel Davis
@DikBiz I agree -- lets you work when and where you're most productive, and take breaks when you need to.
Phylicia Teymer
A3- Being able to work anywhere (ex. from home) allows one to get things done much faster, saves time & energy and is better for the environment!
Jerry Overton
@furrier Thx. Being able to work from the outside-in has been an absolute game changer in how I think and work.
Amber Armstrong
Work and Life priorities can better coincide thanks to #mobile
Jim @ CWPBIZ
A3) Old truth with new awakening >> inspired workers are more productive. #remoteworkers are more inspired (can be)
Joel Peterson
@GoshowNYC AGREED! Collaborative mobility helps you accumulate the bits and pieces into a productive output.
Jerry Overton
@joelyoh Long live crowd sourcing!
Warren Whitlock
I'm imagining @ambarmstrong with her dog while chatting. If not, that's a good focus for new tech. Everything is better with a dog
Ariana Gradow
reduces time and stress getting to work and the commute time.
mediamutt
@joelyoh I agree but the downside is we have to be careful to minimize multitasking and maximize focus.
mediamutt
@JerryAOverton I see the same thing: a move away from "work life balance" to "work life integration"
Jerry Overton
@mediamutt Personally...I like it!
IBM Social Business
Q8: With advancements in social technology, which would you like to see more organizations leverage most? http://www.via-cc.at...

Warren Whitlock
I like where Verse is going. Relationships with people are more important than organizations and projects.
Joel Peterson
Organizations should leverage the social technology tool that best fits THEM. Start by identifying what the message is, what the end goal is...then pick the tool to use.
Jerry Overton
@joelyoh Or better yet, let the organization select the tool based on use and participation.
Dik_Whitten2.0
@warrenwhitlock I agree whole-heartedly - thought leadership and innovation can come from anywhere - HR, C-Suite, Customers, Vendors...etc. Everyone on this chat had to start somewhere...
Warren Whitlock
@joelyoh tools are nice, goals are a MUST
Joel Peterson
After all, SnapChat is awesome but should it be used by an organization just because...? I think not.
Elizabeth Kvedar
I would like to see wearables expand so you receive and communicate data on different devices, depending on where you and what you need to do
mediamutt
conservative orgs should take more advantage of enterprise social networks, but they need "hard" examples of how others have benefited.
Joel Peterson
A social technology tool is only as useful as it is measurable.
Jerry Overton
Better context awareness. Would be nice if my devices could tell me how an update relates to the sea of info I'm drowning in.
mediamutt
leading orgs should start applying analytics and more mobility to their collaboration workspaces - applying context (esp. location context) to how people work digitally.
Phylicia Teymer
@ElizabethKvedar I'd like to see wearables incorporate more "vitals" to show health correlations into biz apps - such as heart rates/blood pressure (do certain jobs encounter more stress - how will a company respond to that data)

Q2: How has collaborative technology adapted to meet the needs of a global workforce? http://www.via-cc.at...

Dik_Whitten2.0
Q2 - #BYOD - enables people to work the way they feel most comfortable
Warren Whitlock
Easy to see what's adapted, it's the stuff we use. Adapt of die.. the world has gone mobiile
Jerry Overton
I think its the other way around: The next-gen workforce is adapting to take advantage collaborative technologies.
Warren Whitlock
Today I expect everything to be mobile. If I can't use tech from my device, I find something else
Rebecca Wissinger
We're connected ALL the time through phones, watches, & other new devices, everything is at our finger tips
Dik_Whitten2.0
@warrenwhitlock exactly - work doesn't stop if the wi-fi breaks. I'll pick up the next device and keep going...
Warren Whitlock
@JerryAOverton People don't need to adapt. they want to communicate and work together. Enterprises must not get in the way
Joel Peterson
Collaborative technology has shrunk down to the size of your pocket! And yet it must still have the power to enable us all to do BIG things.
Daniel Davis
The assumption is now that you're going to be working with people who are NOT in the same room or building as you. That's a huge shift.
Chris Yaldezian
The technology is there, with the smartphone, now the workforce needs to take advantage of it.
Goshow Architects
full functionality from mobile devices is key, and sometimes even better results using your phone as primary device. especially with SM.
Warren Whitlock
some day we'll be able to chat without a corporation. (a WARNING joke)
Jerry Overton
@WarrenWhitlock IMHO, constant connection, open conversations, and engaging anywhere takes some getting used to.
John Furrier
frictionless connecting via any channel enables more viable and productive virtual workforces and digital experience software will power this
Phylicia Teymer
Technology has become more agile, mobile, smaller, easier, faster - adapting to connecting people how they need.
Chris Yaldezian
while. I have been on virtual teams for 10 plus years@danielkdtwt This shift has been happening for a
Daniel Davis
@JerryAOverton The trick is being able to step away, turn it off -- being able to be connected anywhere, any time doesn't mean we should be connected everywhere, all the time.
Jim @ CWPBIZ
A2) Today's bandwidth capacity has enabled real-time collaboration in a cost-effective manner reducing friction as @furrier mentioned.
mediamutt
Q2 I think it's still important to consider how orgs can support offline work - there are a lot of times (airplane, remote site) where connectivity is weak or non-existent.
