Show Your Boss Why Working Smarter is Better for the Business

People struggle at work every day. No news there. We are expected in today’s digital, global workplace to be more connected, collaborative and productive. Despite that modern technology has the potential to empower, our Chaos Theory study shows that the struggle continues. Unproductive, outdated working habits can be found everywhere – and the result is costly. Luckily, there are ways for businesses to work smarter.

In fact, people are wasting up to 2 hours and 45 minutes a week due to inefficient ways of working. They are dealing with an increasing number of projects and tasks. As a result, managers have less time to spend on making sure that their team is working effectively. Consequently, projects quickly spiral out of control, with as many as one in three not being completed on time and over a quarter ending up costing more than the agreed budget.

Under pressure to do more, people feel the need to work outside of normal business hours and many struggle with work-related stress. Many are disengaged, unmotivated, and uncommitted to doing their bit to help their organization reach its goals.

The changing working habits in the digital economy call for a rethink of how businesses take ideas from inception to completion. How can people work smarter, stay engaged, reach their goals and avoid project chaos?

The latest project collaboration software tools are providing invaluable technology for empowering teams to tackle chaotic ways of working, enabling them to get things done on time and within budget, and achieve their goals.

Project managers should ask their bosses for tools that facilitate more transparent collaboration and knowledge sharing. This will allow senior decision makers to identify the areas that sap resources and potential failings before they impact on the business, making the organization more agile.

What’s more, boosting transparency will make employees more motivated and productive. Smarter ways of working also improve performance of staff across the board. With a more engaged and committed workforce, employees and their managers can say goodbye to chaos and hello to work life balance. So, it’s a win-win.
