It’s a phrase I hear often and then when I have a look or try to notice. I find that folk are very much isolated in their own place. This is my work , on my desktop so I can get it quickly.
So lets put this in a shared place. Deep deep down in a folder structure that one can’t remember.
I don’t think it matters really. No one is collaborating really. An item is shoved around as an idea in a document up and down the line. Within the corporate chain.
What is the secret ? What is the will to collaborate. It starts with a Team yes?
So many years involved in trying to get people to share. It doesn’t work . I am looking for clues. I see glimpses.
In a medical world you may work as part of a research team and the authors and all the team are acknowledged as part of this paper this work.
This is part of it I think, being noticed, being acknowledged.
Often the case is one person does it. The collaboration is not seen, or even does.
So yes I have not noticed. I continue to try and get to this.
Occasionally it is close . Shared co authoring reports, a shared site with external parties working on a project.
I think I just keep on hoping that someone notices that I am actually trying to facilitate collboration so it can be noticed.
