Event Date

Collaborative Work Management (CWM) is a relatively new solution category that is rapidly gaining momentum. Today's enterprises are placing many more demands on their knowledge workers. Employees are increasingly being asked to use a wider array of IT resources, process additional data and complete more projects. The concept of collaborative work management is gaining traction because workers need a way to deal with information processing overload. In 2019 both Gartner and Forrester recognized this emerging trend and initiated coverage of CWM as an emerging category.

Our talk will focus on defining CWM, key attributes to look for in a CWM solution and the current CWM solution landscape. Most importantly we’ll highlight how project managers can leverage CWM solutions to effectively execute their projects on time and on budget.
