Published on

At Geneva Health Forum 2014, Wrike CEO Andrew Filev led a workshop on collaboration and how it is impacting all industries, especially the healthcare industry.

The presentation's key topics include: the current trends shaping work collaboration, the key technologies enabling collaboration, and how jumpstarting a culture of sharing is integral to effective project management in any organization. Especially since innovation is dependent on people collaborating efficiently to meet business goals.

Within the presentation is a case study -- how a customer in the healthcare field had to migrate from managing projects via email to using an effective work management tool in order to boost efficiency and achieve more transparent workflows.
