    Smart Collaboration: The Growth of the Collaborative Enterprise 

    Estimated Reading time: 6 minutes

    Note from the Editor: Ignasi Alcalde has given us permission to use this article that was published in his blog, in which he talks about how collaboration has converted into a key aspect in organizations. What consequences does collaboration have in the definition of work relationships in a corporation?

    We are immersed in a “new economy” in which has begun to predominate more  non-conventional work relationships, and where effective collaboration is consolidating itself as a key point. In his book Sustaining the New Economy: Work, Family, and Community in the Information Age, Martín Carnoy draws the foundation of the scene of work relationships in the “new economy” with the comment: “Work is not disappearing but rather it is suffering a profound change. The two key elements of the transformation are the flexibility of the work process and the interconnection in company networks and the individuals inside those companies.”

    But let’s go a little deeper into the core concept of the “new economy”. While many academics and economists have tried to define it, it’s interesting to note David Neumark’s point of view in his article Employment Relationships in the New Economy where in place of finding a definition of the new economy, he explores its consequences and analyses what the new economy produces as “new”.

    Grow in times of crisis 

    Another year has come and the economic outlook continues to be gloomy. For that reason, I’m going to repeat the concept I spoke about a few months ago: The liquid company or the contemporary company or the competitive company. The “liquid” concept arises out of the business need to:

    • Expand
    • Save costs
    • Optimize resources

    Seth Godin already mentioned it in the post Insatiable , which highlights the complicated survival of those companies that need more and more resources to produce the same output. The reality of being competitive lies in:

    Being the best with less, implementing without spending and even saving

    Europe looks like it will go through serious financial hardship during 2012 (Spanish) and we’ve got to get our act together to get our homework done. More for less, is that possible? It’s absolutely necessary.

    A more competitive Euro has enabled exports to grow by 16.3% (Spanish) in developing countries, so we’ve got to take advantage of the opportunity.

    Business management 2.0 brings tools that improve resource management and optimize costs:

    Concepts that are combined with the enterprise social network concept in Zyncro, offering us technology solutions for improving information management processes and business results.

    Let me finish with this Spanish commercial, an example of Positive Communication


     

    Growing in times of crisis is not only possible, it’s essential; adapting to a new era, a new social framework, the end of the postcolonial era marking the start of the technology age and with it, the digital era. For all these reasons:

    • Modernize
    • Take risks
    • Move forward
    • Improve
    • Digitalize

    And above all, don’t stop! Open up your company to the world of possibilities in this new era!

    Happy Thursday, everyone!!
