10 rules to avoid a collaboration hangover

Collaboration hangover

In a world gone social, an ever increasing number of organizations is chasing the benefits of social collaboration, both inside and outside their own four walls. With initiatives such as Google launching its high altitude balloons to wirelessly connect billions of people in remote areas, global collaboration has never been easier and is expected to surge in the next decade.
