Don’t Waste Valuable Time on Ineffective Project Collaboration

Collaborating across multiple departments, geographies, and time zones can take a toll on productivity. According to resent research, professionals across the U.S. and Europe are wasting weeks a year on ineffective project collaboration.

  • European collaboration study:
    • Project managers admit to wasting an average of 2 hours and 45 minutes a week due to inefficient practices, which equals more than 20 working days a year.
  • North American collaboration study:
    • 55% report time is wasted! On average, respondents believe they waste 7 hours per week because of collaboration hurdles – a total of 350 hours per year – the equivalent of almost 9 weeks!
