Collaboration (from Latin com- "with" + laborare "to labor", "to work") is the process of two or more people, entities or organizations working together to complete a task or achieve a goal. Collaboration is similar to cooperation.  Most collaboration requires leadership, although the form of leadership can be social within a decentralized and egalitarian group.  Teams that work collaboratively often access greater resources, recognition and rewards when facing competition for finite resources.

Collaboration has become a central feature of the current practice with project sizes and complexity increasing. Using technology to better leverage teams, tools and resources is integral for success in this environment where projects can span many boundaries simultaneously.

Collaborating on complex projects requires different skillsets than when working alone or within strict confines--especially if you want your work done efficiently across multiple stakeholders while still meeting tight deadlines! But using advanced applications like B360, ACC and Google Workspace allows us not only to collaborate flexibly but also make use of our full workforce's unique abilities through various platforms such as Skype meetings or video conferences - all without leaving behind valuable expertise.

Competition vs Cooperation

The industry is making a transition from Aggressive Competition to Thoughtful Cooperation.   Working closely with teams composed of Owner, Contractor, Trades and Consultants ends up producing a better product and overall better deliverables.  A coordinated approach to the Digital Twin means the right input on decisions at the right time and better overall efficiency on the project.
