Collaborators were once described in a less flattering manner than they are now. Gone are the days of being described as a collaborator, for example, the notorious Vichy with the German army in France during World War II. Presently collaborators are the drivers of business in areas of partnership, vendor relationships and client relationship management [aka CRM].
We are fortunate in this Internet era to be able to communicate from anywhere to anyplace. There are so many avenues of communication and connectivity is ubiquitous….hi-speed homes, LAN, WAN, Wireless and mobile networks offering 3G/4G. Yet that said I think of the old platitude regarding common sense
“Common sense”, if it is truly common why we don’t encounter more of it in our daily lives, perhaps rare sense is the more appropriate adage.
The same can be said of collaboration and the lynch pin of true collaboration “communication”. Business has a myriad of tools at their disposal to have open transparent channels of communication. Yet many businesses suffer from an ignorance of collaboration. The sharing of ideas is what successful business practice. I have witnessed silos of management that hoard knowledge as a method of garnering power within large business, this is in hindsight, one of the chief contributors to stagnancy and eventual failure.
The Action Enterprise -WebActionHero- provides the tools which mitigate communication failure. Our software opens the communication channels allowing any type of project management to foster a Team Collaboration environment that will ensure success.

Perhaps “common sense” should in this era read “Collaboration Sense”
