Enterprise Project . To envision the features and functionality for G+ Enterprise Edition. The next virtual workspace.
On July 28, 2011 a group of XPLANE’rs set out armed with post-its, sharpies and margaritas to envision a whole new workspace enabled by G+.
The group was split up into 3 groups (BizDev, HR and Project Management) to focus their findings. They first created user personas to really understand the pain points they are solving for and what specific challenges G+ will be solving for. Based on these personas, they developed these high-level concept recommendations. These are their findings.
