Word of the Day – social task management definition

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

“Companies talk about adopting internal social tools, but shy away from introducing them because of a fear of change and what they could do to longstanding practices.”Alan Lepofsky

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is social task management, a real-time, collaborative software-based approach to business activities. Social task management is basically ye olde to-do list, plugged in so it’s transparent and everyone can see it. The idea is that everyone knows what everyone else is working on (much like how daily scrums work) so (1) everyone knows how their little part fits into the big picture and (2) anyone who happens to have skills that could help someone else can offer to help out.
