Getting to a Collaborative “Run” in Your Organization

Better collaboration leads to better organizational performance. If your organization can collaborate better it will perform 3 to 6 times better than it’s competitors. Moving your department or organization through the different stages of collaboration is like learning to crawl, then to walk and finally to run. Taking small steps, developing confidence through increased strength and balance and then, with that confidence and organizational muscle in place, moving to a collaborative run. To get to a collaborative run you must extend outside of your organization to a different group of collaborators; business partners or customers.

What is WebEx Telepresence? How do WebEx and Telepresence come together?

WebEx Telepresence allows participants in WebEx meetings to connect via video with participants using Telepresence video conferencing endpoints (traditional H.323 and SIP videoconferencing). Standard room based videoconferencing systems use H.323 or SIP as the protocol to connect rooms and control the call. Traditional manufacturers, like Cisco and Polycom, use these protocols. WebEx on the other hand, uses a proprietary protocol that is unable to directly communicate with traditional room systems.

What Conferencing Technologies Should be Available in Our Meeting Rooms?

Using technology to bring people together over distance is more and more a common-place activity, but the number of options available to do that is mind-boggling. And getting clarity on a solution is hard. The process is critical and avoids a lot of wasted efforts and brings a cohesive approach to the technology roadmap your organization requires. The ET Group has helped many organizations through this process and we are honoured to represent the City of Toronto in their candidacy for the 2013 Intelligent Community of the Year Award.
