Collaboration is the action of working with someone to produce or create something which is relevant with this month since we are featuring a duo for our feature interview. In researching the topic, there are 3 types of “collaborative resources” that individual employees invest in others to create value.(https://hbr.org/2016/01/collaborative-overload)
- Informational resources are knowledge and skills—expertise that can be recorded and passed on.
- Social resources involve one’s awareness, access, and position in a network, which can be used to help colleagues better collaborate with one another.
- Personal resources include one’s own time and energy
