Summary: External collaboration with customers, partners or suppliers can yield tremendous competitive advantage and boost your bottom line. Use a systematic approach to develop a sound and successful strategy for building collaborative ecosystems and communities.

Many enterprise collaboration systems were designed only for
internal collaboration, but external collaboration is also a natural
part of doing business, and doing it successfully can improve your
bottom line. This is because partners, suppliers and customers
outside the company hold crucial information that can affect your
company’s finances positively or negatively, depending on how it
is used – or misused.
