Part of our mission is to scour the web for you and find the "best of" articles and links on collaboration. We have scored these on a 5-star scale, and organized them in four main sections to help you find what you need quickly.
Please comment on which ones you find the most helpful and send along other links you think we should include.
- Strategy and Context. This section covers the collaboration objectives, success measures, points-of-view, market research and findings, and case studies. It also looks at how collaboration differs from situation to situation.
- Engaging People. Collaboration is useless without people finding new and better ways to work together for a common goal. New ways of doing things require new rules of the road, new forms of etiquette and changing people's behavior. These are some of the toughest things to achieve to make collaboration work.
- Collaboration Process. As technology lowers the barriers of time and distance, teams are becoming larger with collaborators in disparate locations. New ways of doing things requires modifying current processes or creating new ones, to achieve the promise of collaboration.
- Tools & Technology. Collaboration being among people, adoption of new technology and tools poses significant challenges. Collaboration tools abound, ranging from a narrow to broad scope in their capabilities. Selection of appropriate tools is quite challenging for organizations. Should an organization choose many tools for different purposes or a few tools to which new capabilities can be added based on evolving needs? What are the right tools for the organization at large and for specific projects in particular?
