UC EXPO 2019 - The Collaboration Conundrum


Keynote Theatre

Wed 16th May 11:00 to 11:30

The Collaboration Conundrum

As many of us become 'shoulder bag' workers, we can choose where, and when we work. But as we virtualise, how do we override our "inner Neanderthal" and effectively collaborate with people we may never meet in the real world? Do we need offices anymore as more business is done in digital space? How do we ever turn off in a world of constant connection? How do we create "common ground" for collaboration, as we bring together a diverse, disparate, and dispersed set of people?  Do digital employees need a different type of digital leadership?

What you will take away from this session

  • Collaboration isn’t all about the technology and it doesn’t happen by magic – it’s a culture, leadership and mindset change
  • One size doesn’t fit all in an increasingly diverse work force
  • Exploring the strategic and technological challenges around digital collaboration
  • Rethinking what it is to be productive in an always-on world
