cFor the last few years we have heard all about enterprise collaboration. Most of this comes from software vendors trying to sell the latest and greatest tool. This article highlights 5 myths about collaboration as identified by Gartner:
The right tools will make us collaborative
Collaboration is inherently a good thing
Collaborating takes extra time
People naturally will/will not collaborate
People instinctively know how to collaborate
While it is a quick read, the conclusions are logical.
My name is Hugo Evans. You can also find me on twitter @TechPAScode. I am the CIO for A.T. Kearney Procurement & Analytic Solutions (www.atkearneypas.com). I love how technology is reshaping our world. However, I am not a fan of technology for technology's sake and loath over-hyped technology. Effective technology, I believe, combines a balanced mix of people, process, and tools. My goal is to share stories about these types of technologies infused with my dry sense of humor. Hope you find them informative and applicable to your life and/or career.
