Stories from the Trenches - What the New Workplace Survey is Telling Us
I thought I would share some excerpts with you; the ingenuity of the knowledge worker is boundless.
- I write custom applications using for example Microsoft VB, Excel/Access vba, and SQL, to extract, translate, and load tax data from disparate systems into my company's software. The programs I have written have automated processes that would otherwise been performed via manual Cut and Paste efforts, or even thru retyping.
- Used Office applications (spreadsheets, etc.) to transform data into usable form.
- I adopted local HDD search capability from the earliest times (Alta Vista Personal Edition). My organization did not provide such tools, so I've always purchased the latest tools available in this category to enhance my ability to find stuff on my machine.
- I heavily use our enterprise blog/wiki platform to collaborate with customers, partners and team members. We are constantly evolving how the technology is applied to use cases in customer support, support documentation, sales reporting and requirements management by Milestone.
- Created a traffic light system using Macros and a heap of conditional formatting and validation in Excel to manage 27 concurrent projects and their priorities.
