Teams now live in different parts of the country and, possibly, even the world. Collaborating across projects and continents is becoming the new norm. At the heart of the distributed workforce is an opportunity to grow at unprecedented rates and harness the power of the global economy.
The changing dynamics of the workplace create new opportunities for managers to connect people and harness talent and know-how. Distributed teams live and die by their ability to quickly learn, share key learnings, and take the right action at the right time.
The movement of knowledge between people across locations and their ability to capture and organize that knowledge is the lifeblood of the distributed workforce.
|Find things the first time||Greater employee proficiency||Lower training costs||Reduce Admin Overhead|
Failure in the distributed workplace means losing time and energy as the same questions get asked over and over by different people across your organization. It also means your company is relying too heavily on the knowledge of a few people and their ability to train others.
Success in this new distributed workplace means employees have the capacity to find what they need the first time. It means lower training costs, less administrative overhead, and better access to mission-critical knowledge across your workforce.
The choice is clear. Learn to better harness the knowledge of your organization and become a high performing distributed company. Download our Guide to Modern Knowledge Management today.
