General Information about collaboration for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
Collaboration – the act of working together with the purpose of accomplishing a task or achieving a goal – involves two or more people, entities or organizations and is an important element of team work. Although it is similar to cooperation, collaboration also requires leadership. When teams collaborate, they usually have access to greater resources, more recognition and various rewards.
Collaboration in business involves both working within and across organizations and often includes partnership and crowd-founding. In an inter-organizational collaboration, the participating parties share their investment of resources, information, rewards and responsibilities in order to achieve mutual goals, and at the same time make joint decisions and solve problems together.
Collaboration allows for better communication between team members or organizations and is a great way of coordinating different ideas from numerous people who bring together a wide variety of knowledge. Today, the invention of the Internet and wireless communications has created the possibility of mass collaboration. This technological achievement has made possible for people to rapidly communicate and share ideas regardless of geographical and cultural boundaries. Social networks permeate business culture and collaborative actions such as file sharing allow for a fast and efficient knowledge transfer. Collaboration has been shown to positively impact performance and innovation outcomes, and to increase productivity and achievements.
