Good Boss Better than Bad Boss

A good boss is better than a bad boss!

In the age of digitalization and social media, we see a lot more blogs and articles with eye-catching headlines and quotes posted on the internet. I do enjoy many of these articles and get inspired by some of them. But it strikes me that many of the written pieces are just plain truisms, have no real substance, or are not really thought-provoking or controversial. Very often, the best part of the written piece is that headline they came up with to catch our interest.

Streamline your Content Management Process with XaitPorter

Content management is an inherently collaborative process. A critical aspect of content management is the ability to manage versions of content as it evolves. Another equally important aspect of content management involves the creation, maintenance, and application of review standards. Each member of the content creation and review process has a unique role and set of responsibilities in the development or publication of the content.

Redefining Document Production Process

Redefining Document Production Process

What is and should be the most important question for all document-centric industries? Improving the document production process.

Information workers waste 21.3% of an organization’s total productivity

A white paper published by IDC, estimates that information workers waste 21.3% of an organization’s total productivity. In monetary terms, this equals a whopping $19,732 / year per knowledge worker. This is a massive loss to any organization, which is often known, but not acted upon. Information workers need solutions that enables them to improve the document production process.

Co-authoring vs collaboration

What is the Difference between Collaboration and Co-Authoring?

The difference between collaboration and co-authoring may seem trivial to some. Before we get into “defining” what they mean to us, lets talk about the plain vanilla definitions.

Collaboration is defined as, “to work with another person or group in order to achieve or do something”

Co-authoring is defined as, “be a joint author of (a book, paper, or report)”

Creating Documents in Xaitporter

Serial vs. Parallel Process

You hit Google with ‘Serial vs. Parallel Process’ and you thousands of articles talking about the study of how our mind can run both in serial and in parallel. In the white paper Serial vs. Parallel Processing: Sometimes They Look like Tweedledum and Tweedledee but They Can (And Should) be Distinguished written by James T. Townsend, it says:

Serial processing means strictly sequential, without overlap of the successive processing times on objects or distinct subsystems. In a standard type of serial system, each object takes the same average amount of time to process and the next object begins processing only when the previous one is completed. On the other hand, parallel processing signifies simultaneous processing on several objects or subsystems at the same time, although processing may finish on different objects at different time.

Getting the right co-authoring tool to successfully write a Production Licence Application.

Getting the right tool for your Production Licence Application

Collaborating and co-authoring content in and across complex documents is a challenge that most organizations face. Organizations rely on manual processes and document management solutions to maintain content and ensure consistency. For many organizations content is the core delivery of their services, it illustrates and proves their value proposition.

When getting ready for a production licensing round, oil companies needs to make the same considerations. The production licence could have a considerable impact on an oil company, and should you not have the best tools in place to increase the chances for a favourable outcome?

According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), a production licence is a concession which grants exclusive rights to conduct exploration drilling and production of oil and gas within a delimited area on the Shelf. The ordinary licensing rounds, which include frontier parts of the Shelf, are normally held every other year. The Awards in Predefined Areas (APA), which comprise the mature parts of the Shelf, are announced every year. In Norway, close to 100% of the winning production licence applications has been produced in XaitPorter. In addition, XaitPorter has been used successfully in a range of other production licence application rounds in other countries such as Mexico, United Kingdom, Greenland, Iceland, Denmark and more.

The benefits of document co-authoring solutions

Production licences requires co-authoring and collaboration, often across company and country borders. Document co-authoring solutions allow documents to be edited simultaneously by multiple contributors. True collaborative solutions are built on databases, and allow for different sub-sections of a document to be edited in parallel. Basically, everyone can work on the same document at the same time, while management has complete control of the process. Automatic formatting, layout and numbering ensure writers focus solely on content. Web native solutions enable contributions from multiple locations and organizations while managers have complete control of the production process from day one. This helps organizations drastically increase the quality of their content. In addition, the support of high-res graphics and vectored graphics add to the quality of your final output.

Perhaps you also should consider the tools you work with in advance of any upcoming production licence application?
