For years, Post its have known as a great tool for collaboration, and that’s great. But. Collaborative tools that capture the data as you work? Even better.
In 2023 all companies will be digitalized, ditching the post-its and instead using solutions that capture the discussions – and help you make a decision.
Knowledge sharing is important. But for too long, knowledge sharing has been bound to the company, sometimes inching its way across departments, if you’re lucky. Mostly though knowledge sharing has been tucked away in a long agenda of a very boring meeting that people only attend because there’s free cake – if they’re lucky.
But in 2023, knowledge sharing will fight its way out of the sharp claws of mandatory staff meetings and set itself free in communities where people in all fields meet and share knowledge on processes, methods, and theories.
If a kid’s bedroom is a mess, you can’t just throw money and hope it magically tidies itself. You have to identify what needs to be cleaned up and where to put everything, and maybe even throw out some old toys before buying new ones. Sure, that robot looked like it was gonna work perfectly forever, but it’s actually impractical, bulky, and broke years ago. You should throw it out, so you have space for the toys that actually work.
This is a metaphor.
(The toys are processes, bureaucracy, and methodology)
(Hey, we said it was a metaphor, not that it was a good one.)
A PMO office decides to create an executable strategy with clearly defined goals that employees and departments can measure their efforts against. The PMO then follows up on the strategy and its goals. It’s a roaring success and up to three employees are able to enact the strategy saving at least six hours of project management time.
Why plan once if you can plan three times? In 2023, PMOs can’t be seen anywhere without the newest up-to-date scenario for their business. They use what if to create data-driven, responsive scenarios that make them look super hot and like they know what they’re doing.
