Abstract

Collaboration enables people to execute tasks that are beyond the capabilities of any one of them. Each member of an organization or team has a set of skills, roles and responsibilities that, when executed accurately and in synchronization with other members of that organization or team, enables them to accomplish the work of the organization. In complex, dynamic environments, team collaboration is more than the simple aggregation of the work products of individuals; collaboration also requires complex exchanges of information, largely through spoken or written language. Linguistic communication is the choreography of team performance.
