My commercial areas of expertise lie mainly in SQL Server and SharePoint, both Microsoft product suites that add massive value to businesses by exposing the knowledge and information behind the data. Done in the right way, both products can enhance business collaboration and bring a significant increase to your bottom line.
I have applied collaboration techniques to many businesses and projects and have recently embarked on sharing my knowledge and discoveries here on this site.
Why the art of collaboration? Well I believe that technology and tools are only part of the collaboration solution. The rest is about people. How we interact with each other, how we recognise personality differences and how they can benefit from each other (check out Kirton Adaption-Innovation Inventory for more information on that). I think we can learn a lot from creative industries and creative industries can learn from commerce. So lets share the wealth and knowledge and learn to collaborate.
As a collaborator I am always interested in hearing new views on collaboration and would love to hear from you if you have any ideas or suggestions on what I should investigate in my journey.
