Five Collaboration Myths

  • Five Collaboration Myths-

    Without a set of expectations about what it means to work collaboratively with others, individuals will be forced into using their own interpretation of collaboration. Few organizations have a clear set of guidelines that describe how people should interact with each other to produce optimum results. A better approach is to clarify what attitude a collaborative individual needs to bring to their work, what abilities and skills they need to master and what personal style works well in a team setting. It is also critical that managers demonstrate the behaviors they want their employees to mirror.

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.”
