Here’s this week’s brief:

Knowledge sharing is a…

…superpower. In a few months, you can gain as much practical information as you would in years on studying alone. Technology helps you maintain a close work relationship with your team, be it a regular of a virtual office, that everyone could benefit from. Knowledge sharing increases efficiency – want to better understand why? Then check out Isabel De Clercq’s slideshare Knowledge sharing the 7 advantages.

We deal with more complex…

…problems today, compared to 10 or 20 years ago. People are more specialized so in order to find a solution or to solve a task, they need to collaborate more, Gerry McGovern writes in an article published by Still, one should work smart, not hard. If done properly, collaboration should help everyone involved. Else, it will make everything a mess. Find out more about his point of view from his article entitled More Collaboration Equals More Value.

Collaboration is good for…

…your career. Jacob Morgan believes that employees should make the time to use tools that enable collaboration and help them benefit from their peers’ experience. He’s researched many companies that use such software and has come up with some clever ideas. Learn more from his experience from this Forbes article: The Real Reason Why Employees Should Use Collaboration Tools At Work.

David Terrar sheds light…

…on the words “digital transformation” everyone uses today. He says organizations need to use digital, social, mobile and emerging technologies. Collaboration tools are a big part of the game. He also argues that digital transformation requires a different way of thinking and a different leadership. But once everything in place, your company should work smoother than ever – get to know more from his article What is Digital Transformation? for Enterprise Irregulars.

Hard skills you’ve worked…

…so hard to learn are necessary, but not sufficient. More and more companies are saying that soft skills are equally important. – and that’s backed up by studies. The way we work has changed over the years and learning new things means getting better at what you do, both as individual and as organization.
