Organizations adopting productivity tools have a hard time making them work. The adoption curve is hard to maintain, and I’ve seen this across multiple organizations, not just those I was personally managing. The buy-in into the tool needs to be organic, natural, and consistent until it becomes a habit. Many managers are struggling because they are not communicating, enforcing, and persisting using software for productivity purposes.

But once the tools are adopted, and everyone is on the same page, I can confess it is a much better workflow.
