Collaboration within and between Central Government departments and agencies is critical to delivering public services. Technology, and the changes to ways of working that it enables, can improve efficiency and bring teams together wherever they may be working.
Unifying your communications and enabling collaboration through technology can be a simple solution that improves government-wide communication and cross-departmental collaboration.
The benefits of collaborating
Central government departments and the citizens they serve can benefit substantially from collaboration. Sharing creativity, costs, resources, and management can improve relationships, innovation, competitiveness and efficiency.
There's power in numbers - and two, or more, heads are often better than one. Widespread collaboration leads to more engaged workers who are keen to take on new challenges and projects. Whether it's improving teamwork and innovation, sharing skills or resources, a collaborative culture can help to boost business outcomes and productivity. When collaboration improves, an organisation's flexibility and ability to handle sudden change can improve also. Better teamwork can also improve responses when customer preferences change, or disruptive and new technologies emerge.
Collaborating with like-minded people and organisations can bring swift cost benefits - splitting the price of new technology and tools, and sharing resources and skills. Within the public sector, where resources are tight and cultures can be risk averse, collaboration can bring about major new opportunities which otherwise might be unlikely.
One of the biggest benefits of collaboration is improved learning opportunities, with different skill sets, perspectives, strengths and ideas brought together. Cloud technology enables individuals and teams to work together on the same projects, documents, products and customers at the same time from different locations, allowing remote home-working too. Collaboration allows more streamlined and efficient ways of working to develop, and helps to improve productivity and innovation.
