Andre Moxie Discusses Digital Team Building

In Professionals on October 18, 2010 at 10:54 am

Andre Moxie is an accomplished corporate sales representative with a strong military background. Serving in the Air Force equipped Andre Moxie with a penchant for organization and teamwork that has been a great boon to his professional life. One of the great revolutions in the corporate world, says Andre Moxie, has been the advent of widespread digital communication.

More people than ever, explains Andre Moxie, are telecommuting, working from home, and working while they travel. One benefit of this, says Andre Moxie, is increased individual productivity. Andre Moxie suggests that digital communication may cause fragmentation of the workforce on one level. At the same time, notes Andre Moxie, the digital era makes it possible to communicate and coordinate the actions of people all over the world simultaneously, almost as if they were in a meeting room together.

Andre Moxie is interested in fostering collaborative team productivity that is not mandated by business hours or geographical contingency. Andre Moxie notes that the old fashioned model of assembling a team in a room together to solve problems and pursue innovation is going out of style in our digital society. Corporations will thrive because their employees cooperate to achieve results greater than individual accomplishments, Andre Moxie believes.

Andre Moxie also sees the digital revolution as an excellent opportunity for large organizations to pull together their disparate resources and traveling employees. These days, says Andre Moxie, a team working on a project can do excellent work together without ever meeting in the same room. By way of example, says Andre Moxie, a stateside project manager can exchange data with an overseas web developer, then coordinate the results with a consultant in a wholly different country. The project can then take final form back at the project manager’s desk and be presented triumphantly to the public. As digital communications become more integrated, effective digital team building will only become more common and effective, concludes Andre Moxie.
