These are the results of a research among CIOs and IT managers by Talk & Vision, specialist in the field of video communications and managed video services, in cooperation with Nyenrode Business University.
To create support for remote collaboration, employees need to learn how to cope with technological solutions. However, only fifth of the organizations invest in education and trainings to attain this. The research also shows that many respondents think about remote collaboration as an interdisciplinary problem, which requires the involvement of the CEO (80percent), the CIO (60 percent) and, to a lesser degree, the HR manager (43percent).
Joost Deckers, Managing Director of Talk & Vision said “As an organization, you first need to look at the organizational culture and cooperation-DNA before proceeding to the actual purchase of resources. Only by gaining an insight into the organization, are you able to offer appropriate technical solutions which employees want to use. Besides, by supporting employees through instructions for use, you will provide a solid foundation for the implementation of remote collaboration.”
In cooperation with Dr. Jeroen vander Velden (Business University Nyenrode), Talk & Vision has researchedthis topic among 126 CIOs and IT managers. Aim of the study was to identify the management view on using collaboration technologies.
