Over the last seven years collaboration has been a core theme here at the teams 365 blog, you can view other posts on this topic here:
What makes remote collaboration different:
- We don’t see each other’s contexts regularly. What I know of your work is something that is shared, or made reference to, given that I only see the elements on the screen.
- In the remote space it’s likely that collaboration and the skill of influence is the only way I will get things done, unless there others that are joined with me.
What great collaboration requires:
- A knowledge of each other – who we are as individuals and who we are collectively
- Clarity around the purpose – why are we doing this. As Morten Hansen writes “Bad collaboration is worse than no collaboration at all.”
- Regular touchpoints (which could involve conversations, chats or electronic updates) and feedback loops
- Focused on learning – regular identification of what’s working and what’s no
- Intentional relationships - collaborative partnerships benefit from international focus – focus on The WHY we are doing things, how we are doing things and what’s at stake If it doesn’t work well
What’s important to note as it relates to your collaboration?
