The Liquid Workforce with Dr. Kenley Obas
As workforces continue to expand across the globe, project management and collaboration tools are playing a major role in successful businesses. Project management is especially important for what Accenture has call the "Liquid Workforce" where all the work is centered around an ever changing team based on needed skills and expertise. Lean start-up practices have also made collaboration even more essential since many modern businesses like design agencies do not work out of a physical address. Kenley will discuss how you can utilize web based project management tools to keep on top of your projects effortlessly and maximize your profits. He will demonstrate some of the tools his business uses to communicate with his distributed workforce. Kenley will also discuss some of the challenges of using web based tools and how to find the right tools for you.
