Collaboration in a Professional Environment
Whenever I hear news of a new app or tool, I just picture someone coming up with an idea, implementing it and becoming super rich in the process (i.e. WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum). It seems my notion of innovation might be wrong. This piece
notes that innovation often consists of team work and collaborative thinking. Innovations are the product of multiple years of steps and brainstorming ideas taken within one or multiple organizations. The idea of collaborative thinking comes together very clearly at EdLab. It is always interesting to see how much emphasis is put into teamwork during D&R meeting, seminars and projects. How can we further use collaborative brainstorming on existing projects (e.g. Vialogues and NLT) and upcoming projects (i.e., mSchool).
