Digital collaboration in three steps
To get where you want, you need to know where you are heading
The three most important steps are, to define your needs, what is it you want to achieve? and how to implement it? Does this sound easy? Well it is – sort of, then again this is where most organizations fail. If you want to get a deeper understanding of my viewpoint you can look at my presentation at Slideshare : Here
The main point in my presentation is that we have collaborated as long as we have been around, but now more than ever. There have been collaborative tools around for a long time, but now we have new possibillities as the web have developed, the introduction of broadband, web 2.0 and so forth.
Integrating what we know already will make digital collaboration more effective, and very soon a commen way of conducting any work tasks as we know them. There are three levels of digital collaboration:
1 – Digital collaboration fitted to meet internal challenges is an improvement from the situation today
2 – Digital collaboration that involve the organization with partners and customers is an even better idea.
3 – Integrated digital collaboration with social media enables organizations to achieve an optimal environment where you, your organization and the market itself are so woven together that you might not be sure about who came up with an idea, innovation, service or product you can put in effect. Was it you, or your market?
