Collaborating is NOT technology

As a true geek at heart, it pains me when I say this, yet I say it over and over and over again.  Collaboration starts with the person THEN successful implementation of tools can be initiated.  Great article on enterprise collaboration today summarizes some problems and some solutions to this. 

How do you help people find people that wil help them on the job?  How do you share info?  Using collaborative technologies forces the issue of changing one’s habits and being open to the idea that others have something to add to your decision making process.  If you already think you know it all, you won’t shift to using collaborative tools.  If you think you know it all, you cannot see the value in collaborating.  Understanding that you have something of value to share and so do your peers, etc. is where it all begins.  It is an inside job!  Get that straight then bring on the technology!  Happy Collaborating!
