We founded Clarizen in 2006 to solve one major problem – the way most companies work is broken.
First we build work groups, and then we engage in conversations, which might involve dozens of meetings, hundreds of emails and innumerable posts on social discussion tools. These may produce work content, like tasks, document, bugs or cases. Ideally, these actions are linked to larger processes, like corporate initiatives or projects.
The issue is that each of them typically live in disconnected “islands of activity,” managed by different systems. But what we find is that you really need all three to deliver results.
That's what's resulted in Clarizen's vision of bringing together social collaboration and powerful project management, with the goal of turning every company into a real-time, high-performance organization.
By tying together those islands of activity, you can build a “work graph,” much like a social graph, which is organically created through the act of getting work done. Work content can connect to groups or to projects, and they're all surrounded by the conversations, documents and other details that give context to your work.
The result? Collaboration that drives results. And that’s what drives Clarizen's passion for innovation.
