Collaboration is a way of working...

Learning to collaborate means developing a new set of skills and behaviours, and a new level of shared vision and active contribution from your network.

Collaboration case study: Public Transport Victoria

  Are you a Public Transport user (especially in Victoria)? Do you use an app to help you with your journey? If so, how useful is it? Have your own ideas about how these apps could be more useful in terms of creating a winning customer experience for you? These were the types of questions we asked our community of collaborators for ‘VicTripathon’, a program of collaborative activity which Collabforge consortium co-designed and delivered on behalf of Public Transport Victoria […]

A short story on Collabforge’s own collaboration practices

  It’s 9am on Monday morning and Mark Elliott is already hard at work at his standing desk, headphones on, busy multi-tasking between his Mac and his iPhone. He deftly switches between screens and tasks, like a pilot, in a disciplined and well-practiced routine that he constantly hones and refines. His main focus each morning are his key Trello boards, in particular ones relating to his priority business development tasks as well as his own board which he uses to […]

Gaming for collaborative strategy-making

  Collaboration Workshop Specialist John Hibble recently attended a 1-day Gamestorming workshop with Dave Gray as part of the UX Australia 2015 conference and workshop series. Dave describes Gamestorming as “a holistic collaboration approach that makes it possible for everyone in the organization to participate in creative and design-oriented activities. Whether it’s planning a meeting, generating ideas, understanding customers, creating prototypes, or making better decisions, Gamestorming is a way for groups to “work better together.” As a Gamestorming fan and […]

Meet the team: Michael Wheldon

  Michael is Collabforge’s product designer / creative lead who has lead the design process of many of our recent projects. We sat down with him and asked a few questions. How did you get started in web design? I studied web design in my first year at uni, realised code is only a small part of the battle when developing nice websites and so focused the rest of my Bachelors of Fine Arts – that’s the excuse I tell myself anyway… […]

Super charge your collaborative sticky noting!

As collaboration practitioners and facilitators, we use plenty of sticky notes in our work but are we using them as well as we can?  This collaboration method presented by Autodesk’s Tom Wujec (and originally from XPLANE’s Dave Gray) is a simple but very useful practice for combining key concepts from design and collaboration – iteration, shared representation and cocreation – to ensure that your group’s sticky noting results in more creative, more robust and more accepted solutions. Iteration As the […]

What people are saying

Collabforge gave us the very big advantage of engaging with some of our most important stakeholders in a way that excited them about the project and encouraged them to get on board.

Beau Zlatkovic
Volunteering Portal
Victorian Department of Planning and Community Development

Collabforge made developing our Website and Wiki simple. No wading through the jargon land of ‘Information Technology’; just dialogue that made sense and practically aligned with what we were trying to achieve. So patient, so helpful and always on the other end of the phone when I needed to ask a question.

Alison Fitzgerald
Inner Melbourne Action Plan Implementation Officer

Collabforge occupies a niche in the market that is new and emerging. None of the bigger players yet “get” this space, whereas Collabforge has a profound understanding of both how people (communities, businesses, government) collaborate and how this is best achieved online.
