Confessions: Cisco’s Debra Chrapaty Talks about the Power of Collaboration

- January 31, 2011 - 0 Comments

Blurring the lines between work and home is something Debra Chrapaty knows well. She’s the Senior Vice President of Cisco’s Collaboration Software Group and while she “works” in San Jose, she lives in Carmel Valley – a sweet 80 miles away.

How does one function as a Cisco executive while living that far from the office? She does it through radical collaboration – an intelligent blend of Cisco tools that allow her to be responsive and connected. Debra decided to put together a short video (broken into two parts) to describe how she is a “radical collaborator” and how you can be one too!

In part one, Debra first talks about how she works with global teams, around the clock and often remote from her corporate office — using multiple devices running the very software her team builds.

In part two, she continues her “day in the life” story using the latest collaboration devices and software. She explains how you, too, can build a collaboration-ready organization.
