Collaboration is the process of two or more people 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.
Structured methods of collaboration encourage introspection of behavior
and communication. Such methods aim to increase the success
of teams as they engage in collaborative problem-solving.
