Management by Instant Messanger
For me, using AOL IM is a great way tocommunidate. I can have simultaneous and one-on-one conversation with different people at the same time. A truly time saving device (if you can multi-task). Can't do this in person in meetings. Also, putting things in writing, with the slight delay, helps clarify the conversation as well. One of course need to learn to do text chat effectively. Everything you say is on the record and can be scrolled back and reviewed.
