Knowledge Worker Collaboration Surveys–Check out the Results

We recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct surveys on collaboration among knowledge workers in the U.S. and Europe. The studies surveyed respondents about things like their requirements, habits, tools, concerns, and desired improvements when working with others to produce deliverables and achieve business goals. Some interesting insights resulted about collaborative work among people in both regions–and about the similarities and differences between the geographies (hint: we’re more similar than different).

A few tid-bits:

  • While collaboration is pervasive across both regions, nearly 70 percent of knowledge workers believe improvements are needed.
  • The top benefits sought? Improving the speed and efficiency of collaboration and reducing paperwork (each approximately two-thirds).
