Anyone work with Smartsheet? I've heard it's been helpful for productivity away from homegrown excel spreadsheets - but also can get unwieldy.

We use it, but not broadly enough IMO.  Certainly better than our PMs' various homegrown spreadsheets.  I'm mostly a consumer of the tool, and it works for me.

Google Workspace (formerly GSuite, especially the Google Docs / Sheets / Slides which really drives easy collaboration with awesome real-time edits across multiple people and commenting threads). 
Asana is another easy to use and deploy for project/task management.

Google spreadsheets, Slack, Zoom, and Confluence.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.30%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.56%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.9%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
