Collaboration Culture
In this day and age, there’s not a single person who’d dare defy the idea that collaboration leads to better, more innovative business.

In this mini-series, we look at some historic events where screen sharing might have made a difference. And even though this is, of course, a bit of a playful thought experiment, we can always learn from history – even if it happened thousands of years ago. In viewing those events through a modern lens and wondering how screen sharing might have changed their outcome, we also find some lessons that can apply to the modern-day workplace.
