Webcast The Register’s panel of experts are discussing alternative perspectives to business productivity in a live webcast from 10am on 3 December. Share your opinions and put questions to the panel, all from the comfort of your desk - register your interest today.

To some, the word 'productivity' just provides a means to squeezing more out of an already-overstretched workforce. To others, it’s about providing the tools necessary to cope with the seemingly uncontrollable escalation in the amount of information and communication needed. Both share a common foundation in making the best of things by optimising the way the world works at the moment.

An alternative does exist, however, one which involves looking up from the day job, taking note of some of the advances in place both in technology and business practices, and actually challenging the way some things are done. This is not about being either aggressive or defensive, it’s about structuring things, organising things and doing things more intelligently.

In this live Webcast, Dale Vile of Freeform Dynamics will start out by asking the question: “With the capability we have at our disposal today, if we could start all over, would we ever design our businesses to function in the way they do at the moment?” Many don't have the luxury of wiping the slate clean, but this not a bad place to start to focus minds and challenge constraints and assumptions that may no longer apply.

With the help of IBM’s Gary Gomersall, the panel will move on to discuss some very practical ways on which step changes in productivity can be achieved by using IT as a catalyst or enabler, leveraging existing as well as incremental investments.

Reg event moderator Tim Phillips will be on hand once again to oversee proceedings and ensure attendee questions and opinions are put to the panel throughout.

Tuning in and taking part in this Webcast couldn’t be easier. If you can't make the live broadcast leave us your details and we will email you when the on-demand edition is ready. Sign yourself up.
