Yesterday I distributed the February edition of the Making Collaboration Work newsletter. The lead article was called Don’t Buy a Filing Cabinet if you Need a Heartbeat:
“One of the tricks to get right with collaboration is to be clear on your intent first, and only then to consider buying technology. That often doesn’t happen and the technology is acquired first, and if a sufficiently broad technology is acquired it may turn out alright, but I still greatly prefer having clarity of intent first. In other words, you need to know what you want to come true in the work habits of your employees, before Googling “collaboration technology” to see what you could spend your money on.“

I’ll send you a copy of the newsletter and the rest of the article above when you do.
