This section describes some of the new trends and challenges faced by enterprise both medium and large in an ever increasingly competitive and dispersed workplace.
Key Point – Companies are experiencing more pressure to deliver results, while global competition can more easily access your local markets, therefore you require quantum leaps in productivity and agility to compete, and this is accomplished by becoming a “high-performance” workplace.
Key Point – The “high-performance” workplace is a concept developed by Harvard (HBR July 2005) to describe how organizations must collaborate to complete effectively in a global economy. It boils down to communicating better, making rapid collaboration decisions while leveraging the knowledge base of employees in the organization regardless of location. This sounds reasonable enough so what’s the problem…
Key Point – Distance has become a barrier to all that is required to be competitive in the global economy and become an efficient and productive “high performance workplace”. What can we do to eliminate or bridge this distance barrier? Give examples that may exist in their organization of how distance impacts their companies performance. - e.g. Marketing needs to respond quickly to a new announcement from the competition. Does you company call and leave messages with leaders around the globe and wait for call backs? Or schedule a meeting in their calendar for tomorrow morning only to find that have can’t make that time and you must reschedule. Instead distance could be eliminated by combining presence and instant conferencing using any device.
This section describes how Polycom provides the most lifelike experience for communication and remote meetings from anywhere to anywhere, instantly which makes meeting over distance just like being there.
Key Point – Polycom makes it just like being there regardless of your location with the relative ease of making a phone call.
