Tools for Collaborative Decision-Making
Working collaboratively despite being in different locations is common in today’s organizations. Technology helps compile and analyze information across locations. The key is defining the needs of the organization and understanding the tools that best meet those needs. We explored collaboration tools to be used in gathering military intelligence for our client.
With the help of subject matter experts, we developed a list of criteria against which commercial tools could be assessed. We then searched, tested, and evaluated various commercially-available software programs against these various criteria.
We provided our clients with a list of currently available software tools that allowed them to understand how each met their needs for working in a distributed, collaborative environment. Our recommendations for key features of these programs allowed our clients to define the elements that were most important to them.
The Bottom Line
Wherever people must share information to be effective, we can help determine what will best meet their needs.
