Our world is undergoing rapid and continuous change. Globalisation is increasingly changing the way we work, particularly knowledge workers. People in post-industrial economies and economies lacking in raw materials owe their prosperity to their high standard of education, which is necessary for developing and producing complex products. This is exactly where Internet-based communication technologies can offer new and efficient ways to collaborate. Noticeable trends are the acceleration of work processes, globally dispersed teams and increased outsourcing of knowledge-intensive work.
