Collaboration, Communication, and Cooperation

In thinking about the Coherent Organization , the original proposal from my colleague Harold Jarche was that were two key attitudes: collaboration and cooperation. And I find myself talking about collaboration and communication. So why do I talk about communication and collaboration?

LibraryLab funded project librapalooza

The Harvard Library Lab , which issues grants for library innovation at the University, is holding a forum in which all the projects get 5 mins to introduce themselves. The names prefacing these blurbs are of the presenters, who are not always the project leads or developers.). Bobbi Fox: Library Application Collaboration Development Tools and Resources: How we can better coordinate library innovation at Harvard. MIT is collaborating on this project).

Teasing apart cooperation and collaboration

Clark Quinn

There have been a couple of recent proposals about the relative role of cooperation and collaboration, and I’m trying to make sense of them. He has coordination as a subsidiary to cooperation and on to collaboration. And collaboration is when we’re working together with a goal but not clear how we’ll get there. He sees collaboration as working together to achieve a goal that’s for the organization, whereas cooperation goes beyond.

Collaborators, Cooperators and People I Learn From

Luis Suarez

Finally, after a good few days of tinkering Collaborators , Cooperators and People I Learn From were born. . Collaborators , Cooperators and People I Learn From. Working together, for me, can be seen in terms of two different types of interactions: collaboration and / or cooperation.

Open, Collaborative Trust Frameworks

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Open, collaborative approaches have been successfully applied to the development of some of the most consequential, disruptive initiatives of the past few decades, like the World Wide Web and Linux. In 2010, the World Economic Forum , - one of ID³'s collaborating institutions , - launched a project on Rethinking Personal Data. The project brought together experts from business, government, academia and end user privacy and rights groups.

The Urban Forest Project

Adaptive Path

Recently, Adaptive Path was asked to take part in the Urban Forest project. Mayor Newsom announced this collaboration at the Compostmodern 09 design conference in February. The Urban Forest Project is described as an unprecedented outdoor exhibition, taking root in cities all across the globe. Christian and I were excited to take part in this project for two reasons.

Technologies for collaboration and cooperation

Harold Jarche

I find the model useful to look at what kinds of social tools are most suitable for the type of collaboration or cooperation we’re trying to foster. For instance, there is a big difference between Sharepoint and Facebook, though both enable some kind of collaboration.

Agility through collaboration

Harold Jarche

An ISD project team should be able to return to the Analysis or Design phase and make changes while instructional content Development is taking place. In short, tying back to my post on collaboratively designing job aids, I think we need to be collaboratively designing workflows.

Collaboration and community skills are the new workplace skills

Jane Hart

OK, these skills are not actually “new” – they’ve always been present – but perhaps they have not always been as visible as they should have been, as Oscar Berg explains in The collaboration pyramid (or iceberg).

Did ‘The Beatles’ actually collaborate or were they working in silos?

Dan Pontefract

As a Beatles fan, I’ve grown up thinking their genius had more to do with the innate ways in which the Fab Four actually collaborated. Collaborating was their ‘ticket to ride’. Maybe they didn’t actually collaborate? The Beatles , many say, were musical geniuses.

The Evolution of Collaborative Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For over a dozen years now the concept of collaborative innovation has been at the center of much of my work. The Internet, and all the social media platforms and applications in its wake have been one of the major enablers of collaborative innovation the world has ever known. At the time, many were baffled as to why people would work on open source projects while not getting paid for their efforts.

University research and industry projects

Harold Jarche

I attended the MonctonConnect business collaboration workshop yesterday. The event was sponsored by UNB and started with a presentation by Ken Kent on his joint project with IBM on the improvement of the Java Virtual Machine. A presentation on the MITACS program that funds mathematical sciences research projects was followed by a description of the new NSERC Engage program, a $25K grant that fosters the development of new relationship between companies and the academic researchers.

Remote Collaboration

In other words - How do we collaborate together in remote work teams to be as effective or even more effective than a team that works down the hall? Let me admit that I'm likely in over my head when talking about methods and tools for collaboration.

Changemakers.com: Remote Collaboration

Adaptive Path

At Adaptive Path we often talk about collaboration. We turn down work with prospects that don’t want to collaborate with us and cherish opportunities to work closely with clients that do. The Changemakers’ team and project was the quintessential collaboration between client and consultancy, resulting in a powerful redesign meeting the needs of both the client and user.

Don’t Underestimate the Power of (Social) Collaboration. It Is Not a Given

Luis Suarez

Indeed, I am referring to good old Knowledge Management and Collaboration, once again, just to detail a bit more the parallel roads both fields have been running all along. And it’s interesting to notice how when I used to work within the European Knowledge Management deployment team inside IBM, about 11 years ago, we faced the very same upsetting reality: KM (And Collaboration, for that matter), wasn’t the business top priority at the time. Ok, back to Social Business.
