Why is it worth solving?

  • Employees of non-remote companies are working in a stressful environment.
  • Companies still figuring out solutions.
  • Home office is not the ideal solution for everyone.
  • Companies are still deciding how to make decisions virtually.

Solution :-

  • Meet John
  • Week in the life of John
  • Solution
  • Innovation of my last semester project to solve John’s problem.
  1. A colleague
  2. A husband
  3. A friend
  4. Mike- John’s boss
  5. A product designer
  • A friend that you can confide into,
  • Comforts you so that you can bitch about your boss
  • Empathizer
  • Looks after your personal interest
  • Worries and takes care of work life balance.
  • An assistant that makes you feel good about attending meetings at off hours.
  • Steve is very funny, quirky. Sometimes sounds like she’s bitching about your with you. :)
  • Schedules a group or 1:1 call
  • Reschedules it.
  • Cancels it.
Weak point was “How companies decide the time for the meeting?”
  • Align their schedule with the boss?
  • Poll?

Time Zone Friendly

  1. Ideal Project Manager journey

Fall reflection

Brief about the Concept-

  1. Chat — Team members can chat during the meetings.
  2. Group Call — The project manager can easily schedule Zoom calls using the All-in-One web app through Zoom Integration.
  3. Meeting Agenda — A basic template to define the team structure to help team members and project managers to be on same page
  4. Visual Board — The project manager uses the visual board to make decisions between different teams.
  5. Integration — The app can be integrated with other API’s for better communication.
  6. Contacts — The app has all the contacts in one place. To easily facilitate the group call.
  1. Problem Statement :-
  • Covid has disrupted the internal workflow of big corporations.
  • Helping employees adjust to the new WFH workflow.
  • Big IT Firm Employees
  • New Rules — Culture of Permission
  • Flexible working hours
