Nothing in this world that worth having comes easy

“Gartner predicts that by 2009, six out of ten collaboration-related IT projects will link supplier, partner and customer personnel”

... heralding a move away from the traditional, closed, inward-looking organisation to a more open, collaborative and innovative environment. Innovation in the future will depend increasingly on extending your business to include a wider community and this will not be without risks. An active, managed approach to open innovation will enable organisations to take collaboration to the next level and compete fully on a global level. Being more open, raises risk, the biggest issue is changing the culture inside the organisation to look favourably on collaboration and supporting social interaction
