Because leaders are looking for positive signs that acquiring collaboration tools will impact the bottom line, an organization may also need to consider the human aspect through its communication and collaboration practices and of course behaviour management.

According to research and best practices, the combination of several factors may help steer collaboration to achieve business results, through empowerment, culture, collective intelligence and technology.

Efficient collaboration practices are showing cost efficiencies, speed to market, and greater pool of ideas and innovation through collaboration, which are passed on to the customer through cost savings and better products.
