It depends! ...on what? Food for thought on your communication & collaboration playbook

"We have some material about agile methods in our R&D Teams team. Those files could be useful for our internal IT team as well. How should I share the materials with them?"

"There's a need for a quick decision about an optional feature in our project. As a project manager, I should involve the steering group in the discussion and decision making. What is the best method or channel to initiate this conversation?"

"I just found out that the bakery in our office building offers a 30 percent discount for employees. How do I inform my colleagues about this?"

Do you know the right answers? Actually, are there any correct answers? It depends, says the consultant - but exactly how and why it depends? Come and join this fun and interactive talk about what really affects decisions we are forced to make in our everyday communication and collaboration - and learn how to take these into account when planning and onboarding the information worker's playbook for your organization.
