What Are The Core Principles of Collaboration?

document Distributed Knowledge
The notion of how we collaborate has been one that whilst often discussed has never really been nailed down. Game theory offers up the basic tit-for-tat principle whereby we collaborate until the other party proves themselves untrustworthy, at which point collaboration breaks down.
Here are some principles of mass collaboration:

*Participation–You want to encourage participation from across your organization.

*Collective–As collaboration will involve taken relatively narrow perspectives and making them broad, you will need to help the group reach a consensus and then take action collectively on the decisions they make.

*Transparency–Feedback and trust are essential elements of collaboration.

*Independence–You’ll need to ensure that group-think does not emerge and that people are thinking for themselves.

*Persistence–You will need to be persistent in your application of these principles.

*Emergence–Remember that the point of mass collaboration is to achieve great results.
