  • The C-BOARD is a project discussion forum software, designed to improve the collaboration capabilities in projects with locally dispersed team-mates.Especially for student projects, in which the project members are usually not sitting together in one room when working together in the project, but each project member is working from different places (from their homes, libraries, public places with a wifi…) this is a great solution.The C-BOARD is the right, easy to install and use groupware tool for projects for any school, college, university or institute in which project collaboration is part of the education.With the rise of agile project organizations, working in projects is more and more becoming the “new normal” - and project organized collaboration is replacing other forms of organizing work.Working together in projects is different – especially in projects with a locally dispersed workforce configuration and the need of using Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Therefor the C-BOARD project discussion forum software has some world innovative features to improve the organization of the project – it is the only project communication software solution which is organizing project communication alongside the project’s Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). (WBS-assigned discussion threads.)With the main reason of running into bad conflicts and low motivation in projects with a locally distributed project team can be found in the main difference compared to “normal”, co-located projects: the missing face-to-face-communication, the C-BOARD project discussion forum solution is taking advantage of the CFLX [si:flaegs] to enhance the way of project communication.The concept of the CFLX (“clarity communication flags”) adapts the work of Paul Watzlawick’s 2nd axiom of communication and the Communication-Square developed by Friedemann Schulz von Thun. »
