Collaboration is nothing new. People have been collaborating since the stone ages to hunt for food. But how has collaboration evolved in the last few years, what has been the business impact and what makes a good collaborator?

This event took a deep dive into collaboration from the social tools to people's behaviours.

Event Questions

Q2) Is a flattened hierarchy, openness, and shared ideas the new work culture of today?

Q4) Is reward and recognition essential in today's collaborative culture to encourage better contribution?
Q5) Does the role of a manager change in a company with a collaborative culture at it's core?
