Rules of collaboration 10:16 on Friday
Whether you’re starting a meeting, a wiki page, a conference call, or a group chat, the same things are required to make the collaboration worthwhile:
- An agenda of items that will be discussed in this space and time.
- A list of expected outcomes.
- A time frame: duration of meeting, virtual or live, or a deadline for edits to a wiki page.
- A person who is responsible for maintaining that people stick to the agenda, deliver the outcomes, in the given time frame.
Yet, in nine collaborations out of ten, all four are missing.
Am I right or just unlucky?
