The term collaboration is from 1830, "act of working together, united labor" (especially in literature or scientific study), from French collaboration, noun of action from past-participle stem of Latin collaborare "work with," from assimilated form of com "with" (see com-) + laborare "to work."
Collaboration and teamwork require a mix of interpersonal, problem solving, and communication skills needed for a group to work together towards a common goal. The team sees value in working together as the common goal gives them a meaningful reason to work together, along with receiving mutual benefits for the company as well as the team. With a collaborative culture, you gain the ability to bring products to the market faster. Teamwork and communication create greater velocity and enable faster growth. The entire organization's ability to create value accelerates as a result of collaboration.
