But most of all, we need to fight to do for all of our children what Oscar Humlum did for the narrator in the Borderliners passage. One of the advantages of something like Slack is that I tap on the app icon and it’s just the people at my company, and just the people I work with. Slack integrates with more than 80 external services, including Asana, Box, Dropbox, , Google Drive, JIRA, and Stripe.
In addition to its powerful messaging and document sharing capabilities, Slack also serves as a hub for integrated business apps. To be a given company’s most active Slack user — a ranking anyone can view, just go to your team’s page of all-time statistics — is an ambiguous honor.
In more and more offices, Slack and similar apps have become the conduit for all communication: people use the app to talk to each other individually or in groups, via text or video chat, to share files and links. I’m wondering if it would be worth bringing Agile and technical skills development into this conversation, maybe as another kind of slack.
Integrating Slack into your Zoho Projects account opens up a menagerie of benefits for you and your team. Finally the climber then removes all remaining slack out of the rope and sits down using all their bodyweight. Slack gets a lot of little things right, such as the ability to edit a message after you’ve posted it, and decently sized previews of pages when you add links.
Implementing slack could be as simple as adding an assistant to a department and letting high-priced talent spend less time at the photocopier and more time making key decisions, or it could mean designing workloads that allow people room to think, innovate, and reinvent themselves.
