Posted by Matt Proctor on Dec 1, 2016 8:30:00 AM

I have been doing a lot of thinking about collaboration technology and work styles and how their evolution has been influenced by the multiple generations in today's workforce.

How I got my 2017 headcount approved in one hour

Posted by Jason Smith on Nov 23, 2016 2:21:28 PM

We live in a fast-paced society, fueled by on-demand information and instant gratification. The Internet is “open” 24 hours a day, always ready with a deluge of everything you ever wanted to know about anything. Social media offers you commentary at a click of a button. You can get breaking news around the clock.

So it’s no surprise that if you want to facilitate quick decision making, you need to be able to present your big idea, drill down to the smallest proof points, then zoom back out again…all in the blink of an eye.

How the Tools You Use Impact Your Success

Posted by Dana Corey on Oct 6, 2016 5:16:05 PM

When it comes to the process of how we make decisions, hold meetings and design products, that might be exactly what is happening: limitations in technology force us to coax decision making (inherently a circuitous process) into an artificially linear one, and the fallout could be expensive.

Infographic: Meetings Have Lost Their Mojo

Posted by Prysm Marketing on Sep 29, 2016 4:37:30 PM

Oh, meetings. It must be hard to be so unpopular. But let's face it — you rarely live up to your promise. You bore without purpose. You masquerade as a working session, then reveal yourself as an endless PowerPoint. You purport to offer a quick, important update, then wander aimlessly for an hour.

The Rise of the Customer Experience Center

Posted by Dana Corey on Aug 16, 2016 8:00:00 AM

"You've got to start with the customer experience and work back to the technology — not the other way around." –Steve Jobs

Leading enterprises have long understood that one of the most powerful ways to attract and engage prospects (especially executive decision makers) is to provide them with a visually impressive, immersive demonstration of their products or services in an executive briefing center (EBC). These
centers can be used to give your customers a first-hand experience of both current and future offerings in an environment that allows your company to really "wow" your customers.
