Over the past year, many organizations have adopted entirely new collaboration systems then what they had a year ago (if they even had one at all).

As I write this blog post, I am about a month into the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 and I haven’t left my house except for trips to the grocery store for what feels like about 20 years.
