Scenario 9: (5 points)
You work in a team environment at Adecco. Your boss wants you to be in charge of setting up a system
so that your team can work collaboratively on a project. What would you suggest and why?
I would recommend Google Drive account. This is a great tool to use when you have to do group
projects. Everyone in your group will have access to the project and will be able to update it anytime
they want and everyone else will be able to see it. You can also work on the project at the same time as
everyone else and it will tell you what the person is doing. You can open up a chat when are you in the
document so you can talk about ideas. This is a much faster and more reliable way of working together.
A lot of people still use email and they send the document back and forth a million of times to show
their partner their work. When using Google Drive, you only have to upload the document once and
everyone will be able to edit it.
