Creating and fulfilling a Digital Workplace Strategy requires unprecedented collaboration from departments that have traditionally existed as independent “swim lanes”—HR, Facilities/Real Estate, and IT/AV. This collaboration must be directly tied to outcomes that mutually benefit workers and the business. The first step in challenging the traditional silo’d decision-making is to provide evidence to leadership and peers across business groups that collaboration and joint-outcomes are table-stakes in the modern workplace. Connecting current workplace shortcomings directly to organizational friction is a useful approach to garnering the necessary support required to challenge the legacy lens. In this session, you’ll learn ways of engaging across the “swim lanes” to improve workplace strategies.


* Tips on using today’s friction as evidence for the need to create a better future
* Examples of how to hack the existing culture to get buy-in from lines of business leaders
* A reframed approach to the entire workplace journey
