The transparency of project work on the Jive-powered community is critical to gather resources and, ultimately, execute better as a team.
    • Jive SBS helps these practitioners capture and consolidate project-specific conversations, collaborate across global time and distance barriers, and manage document creation in a transparent, efficient manner. And The Value Web team has had great success using Jive SBS to gain alignment around business objectives—key to their consensus-driven association—and to share new opportunities for their philanthropical projects.
