In the information economy, every worker is a project manager at some point, whether or not he or she holds that title. Employees manage everything from sales goals, to product development, to hiring, to building markets and brands, and more. When not directly managing these efforts, they’re fully engaged in these activities as part of a team. While this may sound effective, employees are instead losing productivity via lost threads, missed connections, and redundant updates. Organizations need to build a more agile and informed workforce, while enabling more efficient project management. This requires breaking down silos, streamlining collaboration, driving transparency, and keeping up with the dynamism that generally characterizes a project’s progress. The means to these ends can be found in enterprise social network (ESN) platforms that integrate project management and provide a powerful way to deal with everyday projects.
