Using Technology to Collaborate
A Joint HCM and International Executives Subgroup Meeting
With Lynn Grillo, Noha Edell and Ben Vanderberg, Adobe Consultants
July 15, 2015
7:30-10am at the Philadelphia Country Club
You hear experts extolling the benefits of using technology to connect virtual teams and work processes. But does technology really increase productivity and collaboration?
It’s not which technology you use to collaborate that matters; it’s how you communicate using that technology. If technology isn’t easy and pleasurable to use, no one will! The best technology solutions will not only make your work life simpler and effectively connect people and processes, but are also fun to use.
Join Adobe System's Lynn Grillo, Noha Edell and Ben Vanderberg for an engaging, informative session on using technology to collaborate at work. Topics will include:
- A discussion of what is collaboration
- Examples of synchronous and asynchronous collaboration
- Specific tips you can put in place to increase productivity and effectiveness when using collaboration technology across functions and geography
- Specific examples of using technology to deal with work processes, creative problem-solving and collaborating across continents.
Additionally, after the presentation, our Adobe experts will talk with interested attendees to show how technology can help them create targeted networking tools.
