Project Collaboration Hurdles Revealed in Recent Survey of 200 Business Professionals

Are your project-collaboration efforts unraveling into an unorganized nightmare of missed deadlines, email overload, and cumbersome spreadsheets? If you’re dealing with project collaboration hurdles, you’re not alone.

I recommend reading the interview with chief researcher, Maureen Carlson from Appleseed Partners where she highlights challenges and solutions you need to consider if you manage any type of project, small or large. I really like how she goes into the concept of the “modern team” and I think many people can relate to the reality of the “accidental project manager”.

Here’s a preview into some of the Maureen Carlson interview questions she answers:

  • What is the top project collaboration hurdle? Hint: It has an inbox.
  • How many hours per week are wasted using the wrong toolset? Hint: You’re likely feeling it yourself and you’ll be surprised how fast lost efficiency adds up.
  • What was deemed most essential for productive project collaboration? Hint: It involves version control and iteration.

Read the complete Maureen Carlson interview on Projectlab.

The research is packed with informative and surprising info. If you want to learn more, Jason Morio, project collaboration expert, will be conducting the webinar “Project collaboration: moving past the hurdles of your legacy solutions.”
