"We have team members in the US, Canada, UK, and Germany.  Because our project management capabilities are lacking, we weren't explicitly defining who's responsible for what and by when. So, naturally, things fall through the crack.


In cordin8, not only do you establish a practice of defining roles and responsibilities, but you provide brief daily updates in the context of actions, which are visible to everyone, at any time, independent of where a team member is located. Role clarity combined with informed team members sets the stage for top performance." 

   -- Global R&D

Teams use cordin8 TeamMachinesTM to organize, set objectives, track measures, and collaboratively plan their work and execute their plan to produce value.

Project teams  are initiated by management teams across the company to deliver on a set of objectives. 

Problem-solving teams, similar to project teams, are initiated by management teams to study, or investigate, a problem, opportunity, or situation and provide recommendations. 

Management teams -- R&D, Marketing, IT, Finance, Legal, HR, etc.-- set and track management objectives; assess, select, prioritize and schedule projects; review project progress; and manage resources.

Executive teams create a vision; plan and execute strategy.

"One of our challenges is inter-team synchronicity.  During clinical trials, we have a team recruiting people  and another manufacturing the drug.  These two teams need to complete at the same time. 


We don't want people ready to participate in the trial and no drug, nor do we want a drug ready and nobody to test it. 


In cordin8, you identify team members from each team on each other's activities.  As brief daily updates are made to them, these team members are notified in real-time.  Now, each team knows where the other is and can act accordingly.

Nobody wants an unread count that continues to grow indefinitely because you have an active workspace(s) and you can't get to them fast enough. Yet, you need guidance to direct you to the most current and relevant content.  


cordin8's unique aging unreads feature automatically clears unreads based on a window of time set by the user.  If something was new 2 days ago and you haven't read it, it's likely that the urgency to read it has past. 

If you set "2 days" as the window, cordin8 will clear it after 2 days have past without you having to take any action which retains the usefulness of your unread indicator to new and relevant team content.

Team members use "Planning Worksheet" view to plan Work Packages

"While it's still fresh from the workshop, each team member needs to do 3 things:


  1. Capture your thoughts on each 'recommendation', including references to external content

  2. Take (sign-up for) a "recommendation" and develop it.  

  3. Read what others have written on the recommendations and provide feedback.

Problem-Solving Teams

Problem-solving teams are similar to project teams.  They are typically created to study, or investigate, a problem, opportunity, or situation and provide recommendations.

Independent of functional responsibility -- R&D, IT, Finance, Legal, Marketing, etc. -- management teams are mini-PMOs (project management offices) that have the responsibility of assessing, selecting, prioritizing, and tracking projects and resources.

Management Teams

Whether R&D, shared services, marketing, or consulting, management teams across the enterprise:


1. Set and track management team performance objectives;

2. Assess, select, prioritize projects

3. Track and review performance of project teams

"Don't lose those little bits and pieces of information garnered from team members during the planning workshops (e.g., creating the WBS). They are so important, critical, in fact, later on."

-- Integration Manager, Oil & Gas Company
