Achieving alignment, transparency and business results in a time of rapid change.

There is a looming talent gap - the pace of change is accelerating, and old business models are being disrupted. Teams are the building blocks for getting work done but still struggle with ways to break down silos, meet deadlines, show results, report on status and solve problems big and small. The workforce and the tools it uses to get work done can be an accelerator, an amplifier, or it can place limits on the ambition and the plans of an organization.

 Join Mike Gotta, Research Vice President from Gartner Research, and Smartsheet customers from Syngenta and McKesson as they discuss how successful teams combine the best capabilities of people with the best capabilities of machines to manage projects and processes in unique ways.
