Reimagining Collaboration

Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and the New World of Work

Estimated Publication Date: December, 2020

“If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that effectively working together in a distributed and virtual fashion is essential. Phil Simon provides a clear framework to achieve this critical yet elusive goal.”

—Brad Feld, Foundry Group partner, Techstars co-founder, and author of Startup Communities

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by ignorance.

—Hanlon’s Razor

Over the past five years, organizations have adopted Slack, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams in droves. Think of COVID-19 as pouring gasoline on the fire. The pandemic didn’t start a trend as much as it accelerated an existing one.

Unfortunately, far too many of us mistakenly view these applications as Email 2.0. As a result, we are missing out on extraordinary opportunities to:

  • Create more collaborative work environments
  • Increase organizational transparency
  • Reduce manual work
  • Make our work lives less stressful
  • Redefine core business processes
  • And much more

Blame ignorance, not malice. We have lacked a holistic framework to understand the remarkable power of new collaboration technologies, much less unleash them.

At least until now.

In Reimagining Collaboration, I provide this essential framework. In my new book, I advance a new, bold, and holistic model of work—one based upon hubs and spokes. No theoretical text, I offer concrete tips for companies and groups on how to transform the way they work.

Coming soon.
