Collaboration is a process that brings people and information together to accomplish a common goal. What's new today is that in a connected world, people no longer have to be in the same location, time zone, or culture to collaborate. Tools such as videoconferencing and web sharing enable collaboration across distance. And blogs, wikis, and shared workspaces enable collaboration across time boundaries. Collaboration has captured the attention of organizations seeking a competitive edge in a challenging economy. Executives and managers want to know who stands to gain the most from collaboration, and the real benefits.
