#E2sday: Dare to Share – A New Culture of Collaboration in the Enterprise

|   Feb 8, 2011

The web and ever-transforming digital technology have revolutionized the concept of communication and collaboration at work. Fundamental to employee collaboration is how individuals join together to achieve a mutual goal. Collaboration is based on the idea that sharing knowledge through cooperation helps solve problems more efficiently. In the enterprise, this principle couldn’t be more true, especially as more and more employees are engaging with one another through asynchronous, socially-geared technology. Today’s #E2sday looks at the evolution of collaboration in the enterprise.


#E2sday: Dare to Share - A New Culture of Collaboration in the Enterprise


  • A superb infographic. This is one of the best expositions I’ve seen on collaboration in the enterprise, and the benefits derived from it. The information should be of particular value to sceptics and to those who are not yet aware of what collaboration in the enterprise can do for businesses and employees alike.

    But to ensure everyone sees the fine print, you might add in bold print just above it, ‘Click on image to zoom’ or similar. Some people may not realize they can get the great zoom view, and they’ll miss out on the interesting facts you deliver. Again, great work.

  • Great infographic! It’s really comprehensive.

    Collaboration is indeed great for enterprises and even the employees themselves.

    Here’s an interesting discussion from Rachel Botsman on the “case of collaborative consumption”, http://www.crowdsourcing.org/l/115

  • This is a great infographic… Is there any way we could get a postersize print-out or file we could print this out?

    I’m with http://gangplankhq.com and we don’t like to say we’re “coworking” because we’re really not… we call it a “collaborative workspace” because we’re based on that and not the traditional values of coworking for a few reasons you an read on our http://gangplankhq.com/vision/ and http://gangplankhq.com/vision/… 🙂

    Who can I contact about the file or a poster of this so we can display it in our space?

  • Ditto other comments – Collaboration is the future of business – we say connect and collaborate. Can we get permission to print out poster for our workplace? Great work!

  • This has a ‘new age’ worker bias that says people in factories don’t do anything but do repetitive assembly work ~ People in production don’t collaborate ~ which I doubt very seriously is true. They just don’t collaborate in the same way as office workers. The group who developed this has never done any knowledge sharing community development in a factory.

  • Cool infographic! Except when I click to enlarge, ironically what I get is a smaller version. It’s quite hard to read – is there a way to see it larger?
