Fast Forward to the Future

| June 29, 2007

In yesterday’s blog I discussed eliminating business silos – including those that isolate OH&S from the rest of the organization.  One of the key ways identified to destroy silos is to facilitate collaboration.

Therefore, my interest was peaked by an article I read today in the June 25, 2007, issue of InformationWeek entitled Beyond E-Mail.

This article discusses Procter & Gamble’s efforts to improve employee collaboration.

What did the CEO of Proctor & Gamble describe as the biggest barrier to collaboration?

E-mail.

Why?

The sender of an e-mail controls the agenda.

What is P&G promoting to replace e-mail?

Blogs.

OH&S Professionals take note.  Blogging is likely to be in our future.
