About the Book

Reimagining Collaboration: Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and the Post-COVID World of Work By Phil Simon and Gary Bennett

Microsoft Teams. Slack. Zoom. Google Workspace. Every day, hundreds of millions of people use these über-popular collaboration tools, but only in decidedly limited ways: as email and Skype replacements. Because these folks are merely scratching the surface of what these robust collaboration hubs can do, they fail to realize their massive benefits. Blame ignorance, not malice. With rare exception, organizations, executives, and rank-and-file employees have historically worked in piecemeal fashions. They have lacked a holistic framework to fully understand the remarkable power of these applications, much less unleash them. At least until now. Reimagining Collaboration—the eleventh book from award-winning author and world-renowned collaboration expert Phil Simon—provides this essential gestalt. Simon introduces a bold new model of work. Ideal for HR professionals, knowledge workers, executives, remote workers, and small business owners, this timely, ambitious, and provocative book offers concrete tips for companies and groups on how to transform the way they work by embracing hubs and spokes.

About The Monthly Book Club

The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.

Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.

Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.

You can also join the PMIWDC Amazon Book Club to suggest future books or see what books we plan to read in the future.

6.00 PDUs for Certified PMs

Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate up to six hours of reading, which converts to up to 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
