IBRS Video One-on-One Advisory 
Disruptive Collaboration and the Future of Work

Rapidly evolving collaboration technologies are fundamentally changing how, where and by whom work is done. While there are tremendous benefits to the new collaborative ways of working, organisations also need to understand that new challenges will emerge, including:
  • Changes to workforce structure: new hiring practices, new roles and new capabilities
  • Creating collaborative workplaces: from next-generation offices, to field operations to working from home
  • Reinventing Information Management: how collaboration and increasing information volumes and complexity breaks traditional content management solutions and what the future holds
  • The implications of working from home: policies, staff engagement and health and safety considerations.
