Collaborative Productivity


Improve your collaborative productivity to save time, money, and relationships.

Planosaurus supports the professionals who lead and manage collaborative work, including senior leadership, department managers, program managers, project managers, and committee leaders. Together, we help ensure that the typical frustration caused by collaborative work—bad meetings, wasted resources, poor results, loss of control over the process, personality conflicts, groupthink, and a lack of synergy—goes extinct.

Clients seek our services when they are ready to reclaim control over the process and products of collaborative work, reduce costs, and ensure that systems are in place to achieve collaborative productivity regardless of the challenges that may arise.

Planosaurus believes that collaboration should be a strategy for getting better results. This strategy works best when you eliminate these common threats to collaborative work, which we affectionately call Organizational Monsters. Our approach to problem-solving is consistent, targeted, and cost-effective.

Changing the way you work can be painful and is usually unpopular. To minimize disruptions and maximize investments, Planosaurus recommends very specific changes and strategies for implementing them. Experience tells us that spending a little time identifying the cause and effects pays huge dividends down the road—even for small projects. We also know that addressing issues in the context of a real project from the start allows for better results because of a clear scope of work, timeline, and real outcomes.

Planosaurus helps you figure out why you have Organizational Monsters and assists you in improving collaborative productivity so you can get rid of them. We help by addressing the challenges right at their source.

Step 1: HuntIdentify the Organizational Monsters and their entry points

Planosaurus employs various techniques, including surveys, interviews, observation, and paper trail audits, to identify the systematic cause and effect of the reported problems. The result of our fact-finding mission is documented in a findings report that serves as a blueprint for the next steps.

Step 2: PlanDevelop a streamlined plan to block their entry points

Planosaurus works closely with our clients to determine the most appropriate and realistic plan, which may include Training to process improvement. This strategic plan is quickly transitioned into a management plan, which will be updated throughout the relationship.

Step 3: VanquishImplement the plan to improve collaborative productivity

Planosaurus offers a variety of services to address the cause of Organizational Monsters directly: people don’t know how (can’t), don’t want to (don’t), or lack organizational systems and support (won’t). Our services are designed to augment existing resources and take advantage of our collaboration, management, and productivity expertise.
