  • Strategic Planning Assumption: By 2005, agile enterprises will assess people not by what skills they possess, but rather by whom they interact with and how well they collaborate with or manage the work of other parties (0.7 probability). How will emerging technologies transform specific business functions? The character of the e-workplace is not determined only by business processes and IT systems. The character of the work itself is changing. As work increasingly requires situational knowledge, the likelihood that people will work collaboratively, just-in-time and in multiple teams rises quickly. Collaboration initiatives need to acknowledge the different purposes of collaboration: To share ideas, from ad hoc thoughts in e-mail to completed documents on an intranet To share the creation process in real time or as part of a sequential workflow To share a sense of presence, substituting virtual presence indicators and cues for those available in face-to-face interactions Most enterprises continue to reward people for achieving individual objectives, sometimes adding company performance as a bonus. In a collaborative world, however, performance measures and assessments must focus on people’s contribution to, and participation in, team goals. Action Item: Enterprises must reexamine reward systems, redesign work and distribute workloads appropriately.
