Slack uses consumer design to invade the enterprise

Slack uses consumer design to invade the enterprise – Business Insider.

 

I started using Slack a short while ago, in part because a client was using it. It’s remarkably good at what it does: set up a seemingly intuitive, predictable environment for modern workgroups. I’d previously tried out Asana, for another client, and numerous other systems, open and not. Most have problems. They introduce obstacles, demand fidelity to their system, force loss of something one never thought of as important but suddenly realised was; and take time to get used to. Slack does not do any of that. Nor does it invoke that terrible antipathy that arises after entering yet again the same old data about oneself.
