Open Source Collaboration Tools are Good For You!

What are the core requirements for a set of team collaboration tools? Looking at how ASF project communities collaborate online, we have identified four core drivers that help these projects succeed. We will show how the collaboration tools used by the ASF can allow any project team to move from an "ask around the office" collaboration model to our efficient "distributed self service information" model, while focusing on those core drivers to avoid being distracted by the tools themselves. Our analysis will help you estimate the effort and expected benefits of such a move.
