Power of In-Person
The business value of In-Person Collaboration
In order to help businesses assess their collaboration strategies, Cisco recently commissioned a worldwide study to explore the business value of in-person communication. The research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit in December 2011, uncovers business leader perspectives from 862 business leaders across more than 19 industries.
In this age of technology there still seems to be no substitute for face to face meetings with peers, managers, customers and suppliers.
About Cisco and the study:
Cisco Systems was founded in December 1984 by two members of Stanford University computer support staff: Leonard Bosack who was in charge of the computer science department's computers, and Sandy Lerner, who managed the Graduate School of Business' computers.
The survey polled 862 business leaders in the USA; Europe and Asia Pacific.
