As a result of New Work, decentralization, flexibility and digital information, virtual collaboration tools are considered irreplaceable.
Cooperation and increasing individualization
Employees increasingly want to decide individually about their work process and flexibly determine their working time and location. By taking these wishes into account, companies can acquire motivated, productive and loyal employees. Cooperation and efficiency must not be impaired. Thanks to digital tools this can be achieved. Real-time communication and collaboration platforms create new forms of cooperation.
“Building, maintaining and sharing knowledge is an important part of successful collaboration”, said Lars von Thienen, who proceed this issue with his tool, “To find digital information on a decentralized basis is a task of digitization and the changing cooperation. For example, the digital knowledge assistant “Noggle” offers a way to answer this by presenting decentralized documents in a central search result and by cognitively sorting and linking knowledge. Finding knowledge and experts in the enterprise is realizable.”
Digitization of the working world
The digitization of the working world and processes is in progress. IT systems are getting better at analyzing information. Information is more and more digitally available and will remain structured over an extended period of time. In the medium term, all necessary documents will be available digitally and thus independent of the location. This is how digitization affects cooperation. An increasing flexibilisation, decentralization and de-marginalization of work is developing.
New Work – Cause and Target
New work, the fundamental change in the world of work, is idea and movement at the same time. Work-Life-Balance and the industrial internet of things find their fusion in this term. Knowledge growth, demographic change, digitalization and globalization have an impact on the society as well as on companies and are the cause of the discussion about New Work.The target is to change the design of work.
New work is the future of work. Companies need to adjust culturally and technically.
