Establishing clear channels of communication and means of collaboration early virtually guarantees future success. In fact, one of the keys to this form of collaboration is to "build it before you build it"- the twenty-first century version of "measure twice, cut once". Early cooperation between all levels of the team provides the collective brain for a project.
Communication is an ancient construction problem that plagues projects to this day. One of the first challenges in team formation is to develop a common language among players from very different disciplines and cultures. The best time to start forming a common language is in the team formation phase. With early collaboration, the team can choose from a host of tools that are available to establish a common language to help guide group conversations around problem solving, resolving conflict, and planning and team formation.
