Smart Challenge

Today almost everybody has access internet, everywhere, everytime. Internet at home, internet on the smartphone, there are even planes which have a hotspot. Therefore it is helpful to have your project management on the internet if you are working in an collaboration but for individual work as well. You and your team members can easily look up the status and what have to be done. A good platform we’ve done research on to facilitate this is basecamp. 

It is impossible to work on a project only by using basecamp for communication but using it as a contact point to structure the tasks and providing an overview this platform is tremendously useful. 

For tasks I mentioned above I would absolutely use an online platform. For meetings and working in groups I would prefer a face to face meeting but I would probably add video conferences with Skype or Google Hangouts for long-distance work.

I’m not only sure about the usage of platforms because I’ve done research but also because I’m already using basecamp for a project of mine. I upload the recent concepts and we can discuss them and agree on features and changes. But the greatest advantage is that because of the world wide web we can access it from wherever we are. Best circumstances for Open Innovators!

    What key practices USING the technology have worked for your team? What has not worked? What can we learn from this? I think your comments about meetings start to get at these issues. I’d love to know what you think!

  2. good question Nancy, I’d like to see the answer to that in the video… not by answering the question through using the technology… let’s see how inventive your group can be and SHOW us who you are as a online work team and how you got around to solve the problem for Client(X) and what didn’t work… maybe a kind of documentary (this is if you guys are still stuck tomorrow and don’t have an idea for the final video yet… maybe that would work.
