When companies adopt a modern collaboration tool, it can lead to an increase in team collaboration. With these tools, your organization can take a more open and communication-driven approach to project management. The command and control culture that surrounds micro-managing task schedules only hinders your work environment. It is critical to use a collaboration tool to improve the way that your teams operate.
3 Benefits From Increased Team Collaboration:
#1: Complete Visibility
One of the biggest challenges project management software faces, is that communication typically happens in a closed system. This means little to no interaction with the people that matter most. By taking a more collaborative approach, you can increase team collaboration across an entire project. When doing this, it is critical to keep everyone on the team informed. Work does not occur in a vacuum, all employees should be able to easily and efficiently collaborate.
#2: Team Member Accountability
With greater visibility and increased team collaboration, team members are now fully aware of what their responsibilities are. They also gain more insight on how their work impacts others on the team. They have a new found responsibility to ensure that what they deliver is just as important as meeting a deadline. Increased accountability has a contagious effect among team members as well and is easily spread to other project teams, within functional teams and can even ripple throughout the entire organization. With a greater sense of awareness and responsibility, team members become more focused on the work they do and how it impacts and influences others.
#3: Culture Change
With greater accountability and responsibility within a team, a cultural shift will naturally take place. The office and its teams will transition from the traditional command and control mentality to an open and inclusive culture built around increased team collaboration, sharing and helping each other accomplish team goals. A collaborative approach to project and task management can help drive this culture change like very few other applications within a business.
