Geoff Ables, C5 Insight Managing Partner, has been selected as the featured speaker at the Office 365 Adoption User Group Meeting scheduled for April 5, 2018 in Chicago. The meeting will provide learning and networking opportunities with other Office 365 user peers. Attendees will learn and share intranet best practices, implementation strategies and proven results from other organizations using Office 365.
Ables will be presenting the interactive session, “Creating a People-Centric Digital Workplace.” In this session he will discuss why collaboration tools commonly fail to meet expectations and what organizations can do to get them on track and increase adoption. Ables will also provide insight on the future of work, increasing employee engagement and productivity, and how to build a lasting culture of collaboration.
Ables commented on why so many collaboration projects don’t meet expectations, “We have observed that many employee collaboration projects start with the technology, instead of starting with the people who will be affected by the system. As a result, some users get the feeling that they are working for the technology instead of the technology working for them. Although technology can accelerate our ability to connect with each other, success starts and ends with people.”
Ables is the author of “The LUCK Principle: Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.” In the book he teaches how to harness the power of people, process, and technology to transform a business into a workplace that balances a people-first culture with bottom-line results. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon at https://www.Amazon.com/dp/B01N0QW5H4.
