Category: Collaboration

Collaboration is regarded as a working practice whereby people work together to a common purpose to achieve a desired business benefit.

Collaboration enables individuals to work together to achieve a defined and common business purpose. Generally, it exists in two forms:

Synchronous, where everyone interacts in real time, as in online meetings, through instant messaging, or via Skype, and
Asynchronous, where the interaction can be time-shifted, as when uploading documents or annotations to shared workspaces,  or making contributions to a wiki.

Therefore, this category is full of advice and the best technology to use for ‘collab’ projects. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.
