What does collaboration and collaboration technologies mean to you?

I posed this question to a few IT folk recently.  It is interesting the response you get.  Some interesting responses:

  • “its Notes and Sametime” and “its Outlook” (depending on who you ask)
  • “its the way we do unstructured work and the tools we use to perform that work”
  • “is that all this facebook stuff”

It was just blindingly apparent that most IT folks, who don’t work in collaboration, really don’t appreciate collaboration in its deepest senses.  Hey ho, looks like we’ve ALL got to educate the rest of the IT industry 🙂  I’ll be qualifying for Graham’s Wallace and Gromit group soon (Grumpy Old Men of IT)…Mrs D would argue I’m there already!

So how would you answer the question? …. comments please
