First online workshop of IndustryConnect

Use Cases & Collaboration Scenarios   Workshops

Published 29. March 2020 by Sebastian Bahles

This post is related to 11th IndustryConnect Workshop.

We wish to take the opportunity in the current global situation to explore new ground together with the members of IndustryConnect. We are therefore offering a closed online workshop for IndustryConnect members that includes interactive elements, where participants can exchange information with other user companies as we normally do in the face-to-face workshops. We won’t be holding a webinar in which communication is a one-way street. Instead, the participants are fully interactively involved in the online event. They will work together at a distance under the moderation of the CEIR team and to explore current issues and achieve new ideas and results.
In the planned four hours of the programme, we will focus on the topic Digital Workplace Portfolio – Teams, Slack, Connections & Co. We will discuss the future design of your digital workplaces and examine which collaboration tools are being used for the same use case and introduce potentially useful frameworks that simplify the structuring of your company portfolio.
