I value the credibility and certification offered by professional bodies. In the UK the British Computer Society (BCS) is the chartered organisation offering this service. Products and vendors offer learning and certification paths for collaboration tools but I am coming to the opinion that similar to the TOGAF certification for architecture there should be a similar recognition for collaboration professionals. I’d be interested in comments from my global readers on this.
I would also welcome comments from UK readers as to whether they would be interested in, or think there is value in setting up a group within the BCS for Collaboration?
