What is team collaboration?
Team collaboration means the joint working of several people in an organization, its organizational unit or in a small team. Many activities are done by a lone person, but a large part of the work in companies has the character of teamwork. People work together if they have a common goal or reason, and that's usually the case
- a joint project that people are working on
- a joint process where multiple people or departments come together, such as employee onboarding a new employee
Working together as a group on a project, process or concept produces a better result than could be obtained individually. However, teamwork among several people requires perfect synchronization and to have the same information, data or documents. You need to have a single point of truth upon which decisions and your collaborations can be based. Constantly searching for different information, conclusions and teamwork delays, burdens, and brings unnecessary confusion and conflict.
That is why companies use dedicated tools for this - software for team collaboration, where team members can work together, see the bigger picture and can better achieve a common goal. In such an environment, team members share information, tasks, notes, and discuss ideas, new methods, or different points of view to reach better solutions.
