Do you remember when the only ways people used to communicate were: personally, phone or fax? If you recognize the importance of trends researches, you know they foresaw much of what we have today: Skype and Hangouts for meetings, file repositories in the cloud like iCloud and Google Drive, instant messaging apps between teams, like Slack, and advanced management software, such as Runrun.it. Keeping in mind the interest of people and the market in following trends, the multinational PGi (Premiere Global Services) led a research with more than 1,200 professionals in the US about their desires and goals for 2015. Check it out:

2. Project management tools (15.1%)

Similarly, a better balance between personal life and work – I suppose you also want it – will be easier to get using a project management tool and productivity apps.

Finally, the desire to work in a place where team collaboration is a rule could not be out of the wish list this year. After all, you and I know it’s never been easy to reach a goal, but smart teamwork could simplify the journey.
