The Work Graph™ ?The way most companies work is broken.  First we build work groups, and then we engage in conversations, which may become actions and, ideally, these actions become deliverables.  Each of these typically live in disconnected “ islands” of activity, managed by different systems.  Clarizen is different in that it connects these islands into a “work graph” that is organically created through the act of getting work done. The work graph enables collaboration that drives results, turning every organization into a high-performance, real-time operation.
