Why Every Company Needs a Culture of Collaboration

Boiled down to its very essence, collaboration can be defined as a TEAM engaging in TASKS to reach shared TARGETS. It's one of those buzzwords that's been overused, with every software startup spouting it in marketing collateral, pitch decks, and social media channels.

We've added a new level of folder permissions allowing you to control who can move, share, or delete your folders so...

3 Collaboration Tips for Enhancing Teamwork

We talk a lot about collaboration here at Wrike. Partly because it's our favorite topic and we wouldn't be able to function as a company without it. But also because trends continue to point toward more remote collaboration in the future.

5 Mistakes Marketing Teams Make with Collaboration

Marketing teams thrive on two things: coffee and teamwork. The former is the preferred lubricant that wakes teammates from stupor, while the latter is the grease that gets the gears of progress moving. But every now and then, even the most efficient marketing machine breaks down from lack of oil.  If you've ever been in one of these situations where teamwork (and project progress) grinds to a halt, it's painful. But it's always avoidable if you know what to watch out for. Let's look at f...

How I Use Online Collaboration Tools to Run a Marketing Team

  Marketing teams are under a lot of pressure to deliver. They are often under-staffed, expected to have delivered everything “yesterday," and need to be up on the latest tools and technologies.
