Here I thought we were working with laptops, mobile devices, ubiquitous wifi, working asynchronously with others, having access to good information for decision making, and the flow was great. No way!
Too many organizations have only desktop workstations for staff. This grounds a person to one place, inhibiting them from fruitful participation in meetings since they don’t have mobile devices to access e-documents, and decision-making depends on other people for credible information (never at work, on vacation, sick parent or child… life). However, there are organizations who do provide the digital tools for their employees which have real consequences for creating innovating ideas, closing business, getting things done, and responding promptly to customers. So, after 25+ years of Internet and moving into IoTs, we have a lot of work to do!
