eBook: Collaborative Workforce Brief

According to Sendhil Mullainathan, a professor of economics at Harvard University, “Busy people all make the same mistake: They assume they are short on time, which of course they are. But time is not their only scarce resource. They are also short on bandwidth. By bandwidth I mean basic cognitive resources.”

Is this scarcity of mental bandwidth colliding head on with enterprise communications? The number of devices and screens competing for our limited attention has exploded

in recent years. Our workdays are punctuated with pings, tings, ringtones, and vibrations, and we feel compelled to respond to their Sirens’ call, even though doing so keeps us in a constant state of alert and scatters our focus.

Read this ebook to learn how Enterprise IT leaders can take the lead in streamlining and controlling this uncontrolled deluge of communications. Solutions like team messaging integrate many key applications to enable real-time collaboration within a workspace where team members can share calendars, resources, and ideas — empowers your people to make better use of their limited working memory to get more done with less stress.
