Collaboration its buzzing

Everybody seems to be talking about collaboration at the moment and two posts from the Above and Beyond KM blog written by Mary Abraham reveal exactly what people are talking about.

In the first post Collaboration and the Golden Rule, the author discusses how adherence with the Golden Rule of collaboration "allows participants to work together and to share their insights knowing that they will have access to the best work of colleagues and will receive fair credit for their own contributions" this is one of the first steps towards showing those individuals who are not 100% certain of the benefits of collaboration how it can work.

In the second post Setting limits on Collaboration Mary points out that it is very tempting to say everything we do is collaboration (Am I collaborating with Mary now by posting this blog post?) but if we do so the term becomes meaningless, very interesting.
