Don Park has been digging into World of Warcraft. Gamers are reaching new heights of collaboration. Once in my career, I led a team that worked together the way Don describes, where each member was “in full contact all the time and each of them are fully aware of what others are doing at all times.” The key enabler was instant outlining, and (even more important) a commitment from every participant to work together.
