Productivity is a holy grail of the workplace. But when your files are scattered across devices, and team members are working from various locations, being productive can feel like an impossible feat. If you’re spending more time thinking about work than actually doing it, your workflows probably need some help.
When Expedia launched in 1996, the online travel agency helped spark a revolution in the industry, giving people the power to book their own trips with just a keyboard and mouse. Once a small team based entirely out of Bellevue, Washington, Expedia Group today is an 18,000-person enterprise with a portfolio of travel brands, including Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, and Hotwire, among others.
Technology has revolutionized the way we work, but some tools have had trouble keeping up with us. Email makes quick conversations a snap, but it falls short when you need to share a big file or chase down an unresponsive colleague. Network drives keep the team’s work in one place, but they can be cumbersome to use and maintain. How can we build on the technology that works, but replace the tools that don’t?
You’re swamped at work and staying late every night, but you’re still falling behind. You know you’re supposed to delegate, but you don’t know where to begin. Which colleague should you ask? Would it really save time? And how do you know which tasks to hand off and which to do yourself?
Developing smart delegation skills can be tricky, so we rounded up survey results, expert opinion, and proven strategies from across the web. Start with these nine tips.
Better teams make better businesses. But as teamwork has become more fluid, our tools haven’t kept up. Instead of bringing teams together, they’re siloing the content those teams create.

As we head into the next chapter of file sync and share, we’re excited to announce new features that make collaboration simple and efficient.
