What we hope to understand through this initiative are the common threads of success, and to develop repeatable strategies that organizations can follow
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2016
Beezy Inc., the premier enterprise collaboration solution for SharePoint and Office 365, has announced the creation of the community-based 'Measuring Collaboration Success' initiative and expert panel, and the launch of a related survey to capture feedback from end users, developers, and business decision-makers who are actively involved with enterprise collaboration tools and solutions. The intent of the initiative is to better understand the factors that make collaboration successful, and through a series of surveys and panel activities, to create best practices from this community input and metrics that can be used to monitor and measure that success.
"Most companies inherently believe they are good at collaboration, but when you ask them how they define success, and how they measure their collaboration efforts to ensure value is being provided, they struggle to articulate these things," shared Beezy CEO Jordi Plana. "What we hope to understand through this initiative are the common threads of success, and to develop repeatable strategies that organizations can follow. We want to better demonstrate the business value that collaboration can achieve."
Collaboration is a broad topic that can encompass everything from email to instant messaging to real-time video communication. While companies use a variety of technologies to collaborate, the intended goals are fairly consistent across organizations: to share information, to improve communication, and to support corporate culture. The 'Measuring Collaboration Success' initiative will be conducted in three segments: the first segment and related survey will look at how organizations define customer success. The second segment will focus on measurement, and the third and final segment will focus on implementing a successful strategy. Each segment will run for 6 to 8 weeks, the surveys will be anonymous, and all survey data will be made available to respondents.

The effort is being lead by Beezy Chief Marketing Officer and Microsoft MVP Christian Buckley. According to Buckley, the initiative seeks to fill a huge gap in how companies approach collaboration. "We may approach collaboration in different ways, but we all consistently fail at defining "success." And if it is not well defined, how can we measure it, much less claim success? Most organizations need help in this area, and we're excited to add our insights and perspectives to the data captured from the community."
