[caption id="" align="alignright" width="200"] Source: Intuit.com[/caption] Things change. That is the biggest struggle with doing business, isn’t it? Your plans change when a customer or client changes their mind. Maybe once-reliable market conditions get warped with some new announcement, throwing your whole product line out of whack. Luckily, not everything is a bad change. The workforce—and workplace—is also evolving. So as tech progresses and makes some traditional project management approaches not quite as effective as they once were, never fear: you and your organization can easily follow the new best practices and get back on the horse. Most of current, longstanding project management... Read More

Completing work often requires more than a single team, department or person. It usually takes cross-group collaboration with a number of individuals outside the boundaries of traditional teams, such as executives, requestors, reviewers, and third party vendors. Tools that just serve individual or team productivity seem like a good idea but only exacerbates the disconnection and fragmentation problem we see across teams and departments in enterprise work. Workfront is a champion of real work collaboration between team members, and with our newest release, Workfront brings together the required collaboration between the day-to-day contributors and the important, but infrequent reviewers.  It also brings an...

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="352"] Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports[/caption] Let’s be honest. In HR, worrying about retention can be annoying. I like to imagine it's similar to the NBA free agency period. Who must stay? Who are you all right with walking away? In any competitive job market there is always going to be this ebb and flow of talent moving from one company to another looking for the next green pasture. It's inevitable that you will lose a certain percent of an employee base. The question that remains is: how should you properly deal with it? The key is to be focused on keeping... Read More
