Whether you are a 5-person team or a 50,000 person company some of the same rules for successful collaboration apply. The more you share what you know the more it is worth; understanding a person’s local context is more critical to successful collaboration than any technology you may use. Based on years of research, an encyclopedic knowledge of collaborative technologies, and a realization that collaboration is hard to do successfully, Mr. Coleman provides a holistic view on collaboration and through a variety of contributions from his social networks, others have contributed their best rules for collaboration based on their experience. The holistic approach (People, Process and Technology) is the organizing principle for the book and each rule can be found in the appropriate section. Managers, CEOs, Venture Capitalists, or anyone that has to work with other people at a distance every day can get great benefit from this book.
