The planet may be getting smarter, but it is also getting more dynamic and harder to predict; particularly the business world. Everything from swings in markets to increasing global competition to new consumer expectations is changing at a furious pace. How do businesses evolve to adapt and respond dynamically?

We also live in a time when people want to communicate in realtime, anytime, anywhere. Information and expertise abound, but gaining required insight from them is harder than ever. Workers want to use new tools and personal technology to accomplish their goals. How do people collaborate to maximize effectiveness?

Businesses must embrace change by creating a more agile, collaborative, and connected business environment. Setting a collaboration agenda can make a company more profitable and productive, while giving people a better quality of work and life.

Asian Paints is a great example of a major company that embraced a collaboration agenda. The company deployed IBM Lotus Notes Enterprise Messaging, IBM Lotus Quickr, and IBM Lotus Sametime software for realtime team collaboration, IBM Domino Messaging for Blackberry Enterprise Service, and Lotus Traveler. Today, this platform connects and helps approximately 4,000 users collaborate from 130 locations across India.

A collaboration agenda differentiates your business by redefining the way your people work. It’s about cost effectively building and deepening connections among people, systems, and processes in and beyond the boundaries of an organization. Collaboration helps the organization by discovering and combining expertise and information in time and in context, and tapping in to world-class expertise from anywhere. It can be structured without delays and distractions or high costs. Collaboration can also contribute to better product development by connecting people to drive insight and deepen relationships to collaborate on new products and approaches.
