What is Collaboration?

• Connection: Is the ability to develop relationships with others and to share information. The question becomes what people will do with that
• Coordination: Is the ability to act in concert with one another. This
normally accompanies an agreement to share information.
• Cooperation: Is marked by the desire for mutual gain. Each party has
something to contribute so both parties can achieve a positive outcome.
They agree to team together and not go forward without each other.
• Collaboration: Is the ability to multiply each others strengths to produce a result that no party could have achieved alone. Newer, never before seen
capability, opportunity, are the hallmark of true collaboration. Each member will contribute to the mutually agreed upon objectives and goals.
The outcome is “we did it together”…
