The origins of collaborative work ....While project collaboration may be somewhat of a trend, it’s definitely not new. Antiquity and the Middle Ages have seen organizations develop based on collaboration and cooperation. Diderot and the scholars of the Enlightenment period also illustrate this idea of collaborative work during the creation of the "Encyclopédie” between 1751 and 1772, where writers and scholars combined their knowledge. Collaborative work is becoming increasingly relevant. It’s a way of working with many people through information technology. Tasks are carried out with a common goal and activities are carried out via collaboration rather than by distribution.
