Five Collaboration Myths

  • Five Collaboration Myths-

    When IT leaders perform a thorough analysis of the target audience's workflow to make sure key integration points among applications are identified, they will avoid the common mistake of simply layering collaboration tools on top of existing applications that workers are expected to use. If collaboration and social software tools are not integrated with other critical applications, workers must shift context — which slows them down — or duplicate effort (e.g., cut/paste from one application to another).

    When IT leaders perform a thorough analysis of the target audience's workflow to make sure key integration points among applications are identified, they will avoid the common mistake of simply layering collaboration tools on top of existing applications that workers are expected to use. If collaboration and social software tools are not integrated with other critical applications, workers must shift context — which slows them down — or duplicate effort (e.g., cut/paste from one application to another).

According to Gartner, Inc., collaboration initiatives fail because IT leaders hold mistaken assumptions about basic issues. IT leaders should determine which of five factors – technology, roles, process, metrics and workplace climate – to change to achieve successful collaboration projects.

“There are five myths that derail collaboration initiatives,” said Carol Rozwell, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. “Rather than making technology the starting point, IT leaders should first identify real business problems and key performance indicators (KPIs) that link to business goals.”
