Date: December 12th 2012
Time: 11:00am PST
Location: Room H


Organizations are distributed, mobile and global. And the cloud has played a critical part in facilitating this transition. But the complexity of teams can lead to a breakdown in business processes. How? Teamwork lies at the nexus of communication and process. But as teams grow in size and complexity, communication breakdowns happen with increasing regularity.

In this presentation, Daniel Chalef, CEO of KnowledgeTree, will share best practices and technologies that illustrate how the cloud, cloud-based collaboration, and insights into how teams work together can drive efficiency and compliance.

Mr. Chalef will also discuss the importance of collaboration and tips on how to improve business processes. By increasing connections between coworkers and peers, teams access information and insight that previously had been hidden. Additionally, by boosting collaboration, teams get work done faster and with better quality. This is especially true when it comes to managing business processes, and the collaboration needed in a professional setting. He’ll explore how cloud-based methods can enhance the collaboration process, improve information gathering and insight, and efficiently control process.

Collaboration needs to be structured. Mr. Chalef will share his insight on bringing structure to the sometimes-scattered creative process. Pure collaboration can often lead to lots of great ideas without a clear concept of what was agreed to or a go-forward plan. To help businesses continue to prosper, businesses need to make sure that social is structured. The presenter will discuss how this can be accomplished by building a social structure around tangible deliverables and providing lightweight processes that keep things advancing.

At the end of the presentation, attendees will understand the key principles of enable social, structured collaboration. They’ll take home actionable ideas that can increase productivity and enhance the bottom line.
