The Content Economy: The collaboration pyramid or iceberg.

Oscar Berg has done a fine job of intersecting “collaboration” with “value creation” in organizations (see link to his blog, above).

It also occurs to me that Lewin’s forming-storming-norming-transforming rubric also applies here.  The groups/communities/teams must transition through trust-building, wrestling with roles, authority, and areas of contribution, before they become productive in any meaningful way.  Much of this is what Berg illustrates as “low visibility” – it occurs in a manner that is less obvious to the participant, and requires that a facilitator or enlightened member occasionally elevate these functions into a discussion of second-loop learning, to be more intentional about it.
