Getting all the people involved in a large project to communicate and keeping everybody up-to-date on progress towards the project aims can be difficult. Fortunately, online collaboration systems like Kahootz help you to keep your stakeholders in the loop on progress without time-consuming meetings or old fashioned newsletters.
FOR EXAMPLE, The team creating the Barclays London Cycle Hire Scheme wanted to communicate the overall progress in their different workstreams to all of the people involved in delivering the project. Alongside their formal performance indicators and tracking, they used an 'All Staff' workspace and a Kahootz blog and arranged for each for the workstreams to write an article about their progress, useful milestones and achievements on a regular basis. This informal approach kept the whole team up-to-date on progress and interesting facts from the parts of the project they weren't directly involved in, helping everybody see the wider picture.
Benefits of blogs
- As blog articles are dated, the most recent updates are shown first, and older articles naturally fall out of relevance - but are kept for reference.
- If you want you can encourage comments, questions and debates on the articles.
- Categories can be used to subdivide your articles by division or workstream.
