March is Tech Month

March 2, 2017 Marcus Varner

Even as the weather is starting to warm up, your search for another technology solution is also warming up. But every new piece of technology we bring in to solve one problems usually brings with it a host of new ones. As they multiply, tools designed to decrease our woes can end up compounding them. For instance, you may have gotten that new collaboration tool to help your team, well, collaborate better, but now you find yourself spending a few hours every week copying and pasting conversations from the tool over into the spreadsheet you use to track your projects. 

Yes, as exciting as the subject of technology can be, it can also be a thorny one—which makes it a perfect topic to cover in detail on our blog.

This month we will delve into the many facets of work technology, like:

  • What will be the biggest, most important technologies for teams to master in 2017?
  • Which technologies aren't worth your notice?
  • How can your team give a new solution the maximum chances of success?

We will do this with the help of thought leaders like Ann Handley, Ian Cleary, and Andrea Fryrear. We hope you'll join us!

So what challenges have you found in trying to find the right technology for you team? Which new solutions do you think are worth your team? At what point do your work solutions become a part of the problem? How do you get your team to adopt new solutions? Tell us in the comments below.
