As organizations become more geographically dispersed —with employees, partners and customers working in a variety of office locations, from home, and on the road — organizations face a difficult challenge: they must ensure that dispersed teams can collaborate regularly and effectively to drive productivity and seize new opportunities as soon as they arise.
In this session you will learn about the various type of collaboration tools out there and how to select one that would best fit your organization's unique needs and use cases. You will also learn about common challenges in adopting these technologies and best practices to overcome these challenges.
Without a solid collaboration strategy, organizations are very unlikely to succeed at digital transformation initiatives, particularly those that involve improved customer experience. The "customer" may be internal or external to the company.

We will address the following:
• What measurable benefits do collaboration tools bring to CX?
• How can IT and business teams use CX initiatives to help secure budget for collaboration projects?
• What does management need to change--immediately--to help propel better collaboration and improved CX?
• How do collaboration initiatives integrate with CX in the contact center?
• How can you benefit from emerging AI integrations in both collaboration and contact-center tools?

In 2015 they became the first African team to ride in the Tour de France and they’ve continued to grow from strength to strength.

Making content teams work together is a struggle. On the one hand, creating engaging and sharable content requires a diverse team of professionals—from copywriters, editors, and subject matter experts to content engineers, user experience designers, and content marketers. On the other hand, we are pitting people who need data and a benchmark to make decisions against those that plan and execute without that information. Some look for short-cuts to formal processes, while others desire and follow complex workflows and plans. Some are visionary while others are only worried about the here and now.

You'll learn how to ease conflict, strain, and tension in team relationships and you discover how to provide information to people in a way that they can best absorb it.
