IBM Verse: the challenge and opportunity
Fri, May 22nd 2015 12:15a   Eric Mack
Nathan, my manager of client services has been looking at two questions around IBM Verse: 1. How will IBM Verse make people more productive? 2. Can we help make people more productive with Verse? For all I can see, both of these questions are still unclear, but Nathan's just posted some great thoughts about them. Originally posted on Notes On Productivity

My team and I have been asked a lot recently: will eProductivity work with IBM Verse? Most of the people who ask are IBMers afraid of losing eProductivity and becoming less productive as a result. If you use eProductivity or have some interest in it, head over to Inside.eProductivity for the details: click here. Originally posted on Notes On Productivity

A new way to work that’s over 10 years old
Mon, May 11th 2015 3:38p   Eric Mack
I get 3-6 emails every day from some vendor telling me about a "new way to work" and how it's the greatest workplace innovation since the typewriter. I've looked into what they have to offer, but frankly, I haven't seen a real new way to work since David Allen's Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity was published in 2001. A few years later, I came out with eProductivity, which has been introducing IBM software users to David's "GTD" methods ever since. For typical

I really enjoy consulting and coaching executives and other professionals, because it allows me to make a difference in the lives of others. There's nothing like that moment when their eyes widen and they say "I get it!" or "That's cool!" I also get to experience this same thing with students in my Intro to Robotics course. This course isn't just a bunch of computer science geeks doing geeky things: I use it to prepare my students to work well, both in their personal and professional

A few days ago, I was talking to my Robotics students about the posts made in our Facebook group. I didn't want to come across as the old guy bashing social media, but I told them I was surprised at how little discussion was actually taking place online. Students would post, but usually others would only respond by "liking." If my students were only posting cat videos, I wouldn't have a problem with this, but most of the posts were meant to start discussion or get feedback. For these kin

Have you ever experienced an empty inbox? Here’s how

In an hour, I went from about 120 emails (in five inboxes) to 0. For the first time in months, I saw this: This felt so good to achieve. If you've never experienced this, it's hard to understand -- it just feels so clean and complete. Can you imagine that being your inbox (even if you don't use an iPhone)? Here's how I did it. As I looked at each email, one at a time, I chose what to: Defer - If it was something I was committed to do, but would take more than 2 minut

I've been working with electronic messaging (email, etc.) in one form or another for over 30 years. Back in 1992, I (successfully) sold a server-software product that promised to help people deal with the "flood" of 40 emails a day! Much of my executive coaching business has revolved around helping professionals manage their email (many receive up to 400 a day). I've had a front-row seat to the rise of email along the whole way. For many people, it's grown into a monstrous beast. A coup
