All Collaboration decided to find out and compiled a survey looking at the future trends of the industry. So you don’t have to read the whole survey I did a little work for you and compiled these three take-aways:

• Complex collaboration is already a significant work activity for many, and will only grow in importance

 • To be successful, good principles of project management must be applied

According to their survey, the majority of respondents are currently involved in somewhere between 2 to 5 collaboration projects at any one point in time. Today now more than ever, individuals are working from home or remotely, placing a greater emphasis on collaboration in the workplace.
