Change is inevitable and how teams collaborate and connect are changing as well. Tools that overtly manage and content are becoming more seamless and integrated and the lines between the tools we use at work and at home are blurring, don’t you find?
So how does one avoid failure, and adapt to such an evolving state? SharePoint is dynamic, and the only equilibrium we can sustain ourselves in, is to lean towards simple user adaptations, minimizing steps to jump into multiple programs, windows, and having the overall process automated; with as little training possible to adapt to change as the needs of the business change.
Change at first, is the cause of lowered productivity, or when tools and technology do not match the recognized patterns of their tasks. Simply put, the more you force your end users to venture outside of their comfort zone, the more they lose productivity. This happens every time a new tool is introduced, a new process is added, or a change occurs.
It’s probably safe to say, this is not an easy venture to overcome. There’s great competition out there and organizations now know, they need to do a better job at providing products and solutions that all end users can favor quickly, to maximize their productivity within the workplace, and even at home, if possible.
