Summary

Being able to create knowledge with other people—especially when they are not co-located with you—requires several new skills. You need to be able to leverage the tools that allow you to know what your teammates are working on, and work together effectively with them to produce the documents that reflect your best thinking. You also need to be able to supplement traditional ways of communicating like conference calls and e-mail with new methods—online meetings, instant messaging, and Web-based discussions—to keep as many channels of communication open as you can.
