For most pros climbing the corporate ladder like you, the only thing more cluttered than their brain is their browser tab menu.
Our digital tool kit keeps growing, and it’s not always easy to manage.
First, there are the two tools most managers live by the calendar and email inbox. But it can’t stop there anymore. To manage both of those together, you need a to-do list. Then there’s your teamwide to-do list, for which you’ll need a team management system. And to discuss it all with your coworkers, add in a messaging app. Then there are the projects, initiatives, and programs for which you’ll need a project and portfolio management tool.
And all that’s just to manage your work, there’s still the actual “work” to be done. Business processes and workflows between team members and across teams also require careful management. Clearly, we’ve needed a better system for a while now. And that might be a work operating system.
