Duarte & Snyder (2001) stated that collaboration is “…one of the most important factors for team success….. When people work together, teams will work faster, have higher motivation, will build work relationships faster, which all are important factors for team performance”.
All organisations, big or small, should for that matter, be focussed on stimulating and rewarding collaboration among workers. Subsequently, responsible leaders should build and maintain a team by emphasising and encouraging collaboration. Good collaboration leads to a better trust and, most importantly, an intrinsic motivation to share knowledge (Alsharo, Gregg, & Ramirez, 2017). Highly successful companies like Toyota foster knowledge sharing and collaboration through a complex social network because it wants “everybody to know everything”; (Harvard Business review, 2008).
