All businesses collaborate in some form or the other. Whether they realise it or not is the issue. To make collaboration contribute towards long term growth, it must do the following: - Solve real business problems. - Must complement the working style & task flow intuitively. - Be in sync with the working culture.
For every small business out there, it is a huge thing to just be and thrive. They have to constantly figure out ways to reach out, thrive and then hope for growth. More-often-than-desired, it puts them in the survival mode.
Go to guys. Those nerdy, knowledge hungry guys in every organisation to whom one turns for help or support. Because they can be relied upon to solve any issue. What are the incentives of becoming the go-to-guy? Colleagues & bosses seek their advice because it gets things done. They are indispensable at work because they know what others don’t. They are not sought for their wit or charisma but for the good old fashioned virtue of hard work and taking the initiative to know more.
“Get it right the first time” is the Mantra now. Of course, mistakes do form a part of great growth stories. But the sooner the mistakes are spotted and rectified, faster the growth. To prevent mistakes, we need to know how to perform tasks and the knowledge to improve , or know how. This is where most organisations underestimate the power of knowledge management. The usual activities to increase learning may not be sufficient.
“Task management” does not really require too many explanations. It is simple. A system which helps manage the innumerable tasks that turns the wheel around. Recording, assigning and monitoring tasks are the minimum that this system is expected to do. That is how it all began
I am very happy to announce that we launched Sigmify on 18-19 March, 2015 at CIO Conclave in Mumbai. We were hard at work for about a year and a half in developing and refining Sigmify. We developed core platform, built Issue Management and CRM Management applications and deployed internally. We invited our business associates to review the platform. Internal customer’s feedback helped us get over teething troubles before the formal launch. The concept received an enthusiastic response from the attendees and visitors to the booth at CIO Conclave. The CIOs and CTOs could instantly relate to two main problems they face, a) ‘Silo’ed Automation b) Fragmentation of work. I will explain how Sigmify promises to address these.
