April 2018 Book Club Q&A Closing Webinar – Collaboration Tools for Project Managers: How to Choose, Get Started and Collaborate with Technology
Closing Q&A webinar for April 2018 Book Club on Collaboration Tools for Project Managers: How to Choose, Get Started and Collaborate with Technology by Elizabeth Harrin.
About the book
Today’s project leaders face the challenge of managing projects effectively using tested and reliable methods while innovating with new methods to meet the demands of their global and technology-savvy team members and stakeholders.
Information travels faster than ever before. Project managers are called upon to produce relevant and up-to-date project information, increase productivity, and deliver results through top-notch communication tools.
Social media and online communication tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have rapidly changed our world outside of the workplace. These platforms and other tools such as wikis, instant messaging, and big data repositories offer exciting possibilities to improve project team collaboration and stakeholder communication in the workplace as well.
Since project managers rely on communication and effective team management skills, they need to keep up with the fast pace of change, technological trends, and the latest business drivers that help move organizations forward.
In Collaboration Tools for Project Managers, Elizabeth Harrin builds upon her 2010 book, Social Media for Project Managers, by providing the latest information, success stories, and an easy-to-follow guide to implementing online collaboration tools and helping to overcome obstacles.
In order to communicate faster, work virtually with people across the globe, and get better business results, project teams should explore how online collaboration tools can deliver project success and improve business value.
