AUGIWorld August 2017 Issue
Collaboration in Action
Collaboration is often talked about and occasionally put into practice, sometimes successfully so. When thinking about collaboration, we tend to focus on the human aspect. That is, it takes individuals to do the hard work of planning process and procedure, and for everyone else to buy in, to ensure that collaboration moves from theory to reality.
But there’s a technology element that should be considered as well—what can software tools do to facilitate collaboration? The August 2017 issue of AUGIWorld focuses on these concepts and more.
