Projects. When dealing with large, distributed projects we benefit from a certain degree of organization coupled with solid communication. Over the past century we have seen demonstrated a significant improvement in organizational efficiency and general productivity through the use of more specialized, better engineered tools. More recently the web and the related computing and networking advances push the limits of data integration and real-time communication. What does all this mean? We can actually know what is happening and where within our organizations and simultaneously experience the situation on the ground. Thereby we are able to provide a positive influence on the realities within our communities.
Collaborate. Use the Activity Stream to keep the teams updated in real time. Have collective conversations with the Forum. Create categories as you need them, when you need them. Write articles, and work together to publish works to your colleagues or even to the public-at-large, all on the iCoalesce platform.
Use Data. One key to long term success is the use of metrics, as refined as possible, and further, a system of flexibly managing those metrics over time. Because needs and efforts change, organizations can more efficiently direct growth as people learn new things by applying their collaborative understanding of the problem while testing the outcomes using proven scientific methods.
