Developing a Playbook Strategy for Efficient Collaboration
As discussed at CIDM Best Practices Conference 2013, Comtech is building a Playbook repository for CIDM members to collaborate on plays. Our vision is for CIDM members to access the repository to search for plays to download, offer suggestions to improve plays, and adapt plays to a specific organization. The Playbook site currently already has eight plays draftedto view them, please visit http://knight.comtech-serv.com:8081/playbooks/. We see the playbook repository as a faster way of creating a common set of plays for collaborating that many members can use.
