Oxford American Dictionary (2005): “the action of working with someone to produce or create something.” (5 Nov 2007): “The description of collaboration as a dynamic process resulting from developmental group stages and as an outcome, producing a synthesis of different perspectives more accurately reflects the reality that collaboration evolves in partnerships and in teams.” (5 Nov 2007): “Baggs and Schmitt (1988) reframe the relationship between collaboration and teamwork by defining collaboration as the most important aspect of team care but certainly not the only dimension.” (5 Nov 2007): “Collaboration is both a process and an outcome in which shared interest or conflict that cannot be addressed by any single individual is addressed by key stakeholders. A key stakeholder is any party directly influenced by the actions others take to solve a complex problem. The collaborative process involves a synthesis of different perspectives to better understand complex problems. A collaborative outcome is the development of integrative solutions that go beyond an individual vision to a productive resolution that could not be accomplished by any single person or organization.” (5 Nov 2007): “Collaboration is a structured, recursive process where two or more people work together toward a common goal—typically an intellectual endeavor that is creative in nature — by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus. Collaboration does not require leadership and can even bring better results through decentralization and egalitarianism. In particular, teams that work collaboratively can obtain greater resources, recognition and reward when facing competition for finite resources.”
