Why we do it | Collaborative Intelligence
For many organizations, leading by intuition isn’t enough to drive successful results. At The Work Innovation Lab by Asana, our leading-edge, human-centered research is designed to help businesses and leaders apply a data-driven, research-backed approach to decision-making.
Collaborative Intelligence is at the center of The Work Innovation Lab’s research and it enables leaders and managers to understand how to improve their collaboration to maximize performance—including increasing efficiency, productivity, innovation, and employee engagement. Collaborative Intelligence is based on the premise that we can enable the world’s teams to work together more effortlessly by helping them achieve “healthier” collaboration.
The organizations that thrive today and in the future will embrace Collaborative Intelligence to determine how their teams can work better together to drive mission-critical business outcomes.

At one extreme, too little collaboration results in employees feeling lonely, languishing, and under-engaged. At the other extreme, too much collaboration results in employees feeling overloaded, overwhelmed, and burned out.
Today, collaboration is more invisible than ever, involving distributed workers, more technologies, and more complex workflows. As we continue to innovate, we’re infusing our product with Collaborative Intelligence—insights about how individuals, teams, and organizations are collaborating.
With the power of collaborative intelligence, we can help organizations detect the dysfunctional and functional parts of their collaboration network.
Anatomy of Work
Asana’s 2023 Anatomy of Work Global Index offers concrete steps organizations can take to build a more agile workplace and reduce monotonous “work about work”.
Asana’s 2023 Anatomy of Work Global Index surveyed more than 10,000 knowledge workers to learn what “work about work” actually looks like in their daily lives. What we found is that roughly 60% of people’s workdays are spent on “work about work”—not on the skilled work they were hired to do.
The result? Hundreds of hours wasted a year, declining workplace productivity, and increasing worker burnout.
The Anatomy of Work report offers key takeaways for companies on building more clarity into their workflows, being more transparent about organizational goals, improving skill building, and modeling sustainable work-life balances.
