A discussion of “what it is?”, “what it does?”, and “why do it?” resulted in the “F Words” of collaboration.
- One group defined collaboration as: getting people who share a common objective talking, relating, and feeling together.
- Collaboration creates an opportunity to have fun on a project.
- It’s how you would behave, if you were working on a project with a group of friends. It’s the right thing to do.
- Collaborating is personally fulfilling, especially when you personalize the mission of the asset.
Earlier this week, John Tocci, Lila Tocci, and I attended the Collaboration Forum (no relation to the BIMForum), where a group of AECO professionals gathered to talk about (what else?) collaboration.
