About This Community

We are lucky to be part of a large network of practice centered around collaboration. Additionally, Blue Oxen Associates hosts a number of collaboratories for different groups and projects.

This collaboratory (the Collab Wiki) serves as a Dynamic Knowledge Repository for this community, with wisdom gleamed from all of our different collaboratories as well as our community at large.
