Collaboration in today's global business environment is being highlighted by management experts and financial analysts as critical to innovation and the creation of new business models. Successful collaborations that were created outside the traditional business world, such as Wikipediat and open-source development, are being held up as models for enterprises as they meet the challenges of a connected world involving customers, partners, and competitors. These models can help enable enterprises to be more flexible and creative and more responsive to customer needs in the connected world. Research into new organizational structures and the technologies that facilitate change provides the foundation for implementing future business transformations.
