Getting More Productivity From Work Groups

12:03 PM   ♥   Comment

If you are part of a work group at your job, then you know how difficult it can be to stay organized. No matter how many meetings you have, someone is inevitably going to go off track and get lost in what they are supposed to do. Work group inefficiency was a way of life until technology presented these convenient and helpful tools that keep everyone on the same page.

Video Conferencing

One of the problems work groups from large companies have is that they can often be spread out to three or four different areas. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to do a conference call and having people cutting in and out, or people miss out on information completely. Video conferencing is convenient because the entire group can actually see each other, and the more advanced video conferencing solutions have interactive documents and real-time document printing that anyone in the group can use.

Cloud Computing

If there has been one major advance in technology that has really helped work groups, it is cloud computing. With the cloud, workers anywhere can access the work group’s data and get things done. This means that work group members can access the company’s shared storage solutions from home to get work done after hours. It also means that work group members who are traveling can still access the data they need and become meaningful parts of group conversations.

File Sharing

Anyone who has worked in a group before knows the horrors of file sharing. Even if the entire group is using the same word processor or presentation software title, those documents will be hard to share if everyone has a different version of the software. File sharing software allows work group members to share documents and converts documents into formats that are compatible on all platforms. The most popular universal file sharing format is the PDF, but there are other formats that are used to make sure that everyone can read important group documents.

Work groups serve essential functions in any company, and a good work group can make a good company even stronger. But there has always been obstacles to creating productive work groups that cause frustration and even anger. Thanks to technology, those obstacles have been removed and now work groups can get down to doing the job they were hired for in the first place.
