The article focuses on describing the concept of “Working Out Loud” (WOL), a new way of bringing social collaboration and narration techniques into the workplace by capturing and storing work in locations where others can access and benefit from it, while providing context about the work for others to leverage.

It’s not enough to just hire talented professionals and let them do their work – the organization needs to know and share what everyone is working on, how they’re doing their work and what they’ve learned. Others in the enterprise could use that information to excel in their own work and make the company more successful.
— Naomi Souza, Director, RealFoundations

  • Quickly find answers to questions

  • Read fewer emails

  • Forge strong and highly productive professional relationships

  • Attend fewer meetings

  • Work whenever and wherever

  • Establish personal brand recognition
