Teamwork is necessary for the completion of vast projects. But teamwork or team collaboration is not an easy task. It requires proper communication, cooperation and understanding among the different members of the team so as to bring out the best in everyone. If all the individual members of the team are giving in their best effort it reflects on the result. Team collaboration in an office is carried out with a team head employing specific set of tasks to each member and instructing them about the procedure. The team members report to the head after their work is completed. Meetings are called by members to clear any issues or discuss about problems arising in the project. Team members also communicate with each other to keep track of each other’s progress.
The same team collaboration when done with individuals associated in different parts of the world becomes very difficult because there is a limited number of ways in which the team members can communicate with each other or discuss about issues arising from time to time in the project. These problems can be solved by taking the team collaboration process online. Online team collaboration is managed by a software interface, where every team member can log in on their remote computers to the internet and communicate/ collaborate with the other members associated with the project.
Developer forums and blogs are examples of online team collaboration which is setup by the head of the project. Team members can create new threads for discussions and fellow members can post their opinions on the same.
