Team Collaboration was the topic of the 35th hangout of the Sensible Project Manager Hangout Community. In this community of project managers and others who enjoy discussing project management topics, we have a weekly hangout which is hosted via Google+ Hangout. These hangouts are held each Friday at 9:00am pacific time.
In this hangout, Mark Phillipy discusses team collaboration and its impact and importance on project management. If you think about the definition of collaboration it is “the action of working with someone to produce or create something”. I would add to that definition the fact that the team should be working together to complete a task or set of tasks to achieve shared goals.
Concepts that were discussed during the hangout
Things that distract from good team collaboration
- Silo corporate culture which discourages collaboration between teams
- Closed mindset which discourages individuals from communicating with each other
