Many mission-driven companies use team collaboration software because it’s a practical tool that allows them to communicate with each other and collaborate regardless of their geographical location. While team collaboration software is beneficial for board meetings, it also has its disadvantages and risks.
Utilizing the right tools can help boards be more productive, and that in turn, lead to greater productivity and organizational success. By removing information silos and speeding the process of completing tasks powerful collaboration tools can significantly increase productivity.
A well-designed collaboration tool can also enhance the quality of meetings as well as increase transparency within an organisation. It can decrease the amount and complexity of tools used which can reduce the amount of information lost during translation. In addition, the ability to create an interactive real-time whiteboard which can be shared with all users on platforms means that ideas and suggestions can be shared quickly and easily.
Boards can collaborate in a cooperative manner regardless of their geographical location or time zone, using the right tools. For instance when an organization is working on a project that involves shooting an advertisement for their new product and requires coordination of schedules with their videographer, they can collaborate on an outline of the project with their colleague using a collaboration tool like Jira. This allows you to see all the details regarding the project including the timeline and who is responsible for each stage.
