We can’t deny that technology has helped us work smarter. Organizations are now using bots to free up their people from administrative tasks to focus on more important humanly tasks. Normally a task that takes us hours to finish, can be done in just a couple of minutes with the help of bots and advanced technologies.

In this episode, we’re going to talk about technology and how it elevates our work with Christopher Creel! Chris is the author of the book Adaptive: Scaling Empathy and Trust to Create Workplace Nirvana, a book that’ll help you attract, retain, and utilize your talent to the fullest.

He also talks about how technology empowers organizations to become not only efficient in doing work tasks but it also helps people in it become better humans. Moreover, we also touch the issue of a key person’s role, changing company culture and many more!

Chris Creel is one of the world’s leading experts in crowdsourcing organizational design through bots & collaboration technologies to achieve profound improvements in strategy execution. Over his 30+ year career, he has helped clients realize billions of dollars in returns through high-integrity R&D programs designed to reduce costs and reposition them in the market, most recently in data analytics.

In 2013 he launched a bold, 6-year experiment based on 8 years of research and development to answer one question - can collaboration technologies deliver a dramatically new level of adaptability through crowdsourced organizational designs? The results of the Adaptive experiment improved business results, increased employee productivity, and engagement, promoted collective and individual growth, and raised the general level of happiness in the workplace. Three independent studies over the course of the experiment showed dramatic improvements in engagement, productivity, operational efficiencies, and risk mitigation.
