The Proliferation Of Activities In Collaboration Tools

I noticed that many people now-a-days use collaboration tools such as Streamwork, JAM, Sharepoint etc, where they can create a work space for the activities they do. I also overheard people starting to complain a bit about the number of activities they are part of and how they are not able to keep track of which activities are important and which ones are not. It is starting to sound a bit like email.

There is a need to organize these activities in a meaningful way. One way is to let people organize it by the goals they have set for themselves. It is important to know why you are doing what you are doing everyday. Unfortunately none of these collaboration tools are connected to goal management systems. An interesting area for innovation. I am going to think about this for the next few days.
