Getting the Most Out of Working in a Digital World
As director of product marketing for Acrobat Solutions at Adobe, I speak with customers everyday about how they can better maximize their productivity in the workplace. They talk about how it gets more and more difficult every day to manage the increasing volume of information, the growing variety of devices, and generally keeping everyone on the same page.
We tend to rely on technology to make our days more productive. But with so many different tools and platforms available these days, are we overcomplicating things?
In my recent article in Lifehack – a site that provides tips for increasing productivity and organization – I encourage knowledge workers to take a hard look at their digital work habits and recognize whether these habits are helping or hurting productivity. In the article, I focus on the digital document because of the critical role that documents, particularly PDF, play in everyday work. I also dive deep into the importance of “putting content into context”, not “breaking the chain of workflow” and protecting yourself in an online environment that can easily be compromised.
While IT departments can arm employees with the right tools and training, individuals ultimately have control over how they put the training and the tools into use. Check out the full post in Lifehack here for tips on how to get your digital workflow under control.
