BYOD - Bring Your Own Device - is making waves again in IT, and not for the reasons you’d think. The hassles of interoperability and security, while far from gone, have largely been solved by today’s tech-heads… and worker attention is moving the ‘what’ to the ‘how’. Workers are coming up with new ideas, new methods, and new approaches to working together. In two words, it’s collaboration innovation.
What kind of innovation is involved? It’s about seeing the strengths and advantages of each device, whatever that device is. It’s about understanding different modes of interaction in today’s workplace, and loose-linked workgroups coming together using technologies they tacitly agree are best for the job. A key principle is that it’s being driven by the workers themselves...not always the IT department.
