It’s safe to say that it’s not possible to have collaboration at scale without technology. In fact technology is one of the biggest factors driving any type of collaboration in our organizations today. To explore the role that technology plays in bringing our people and information closer together I spoke with Jeffrey Rodman, the co-founder of Polycom (who is a member of our Future of Work Community). Many of you are familiar with Polycom and, in fact, have used their products (remember those triangle conference phones?). In this episode of the future of work podcast Jeff and I explore the differences in collaboration between smaller and larger organizations and if we still need offices. We cover Millennials, freelancers and the contingent workforce; and how collaboration plays a role in connecting these different types of employees. We also talk the about challenges associated with collaboration and, Jeff takes us through some of the cool technologies that he’s working on at Polycom. We conclude with Jeff’s advice to organizations, managers and employees who are looking to improve collaboration within their organization. Tune in for a great discussion With Jeff Rodman on the role of technology in collaboration!
