What is a collaboration agreement? How is it different to a teaming agreement? Many people use the terms interchangeably, but there is a distinction between them.

A Collaboration Agreement is for people working on the same thing

A collaboration agreement is an agreement that regulates two or more people working together on a project. They work together or collaborate on something, like a painting, piece of software, app or game. They collaborate to make one thing that cannot be separated into parts. Sometimes people call it a cocreation agreement.

This is different to a teaming agreement, which is an agreement regulate how two or more people will work as a team doing separate things that are related. They work as a team to make two separate but related things. With teaming you end up with two parts that make a whole.

Why use a Collaboration Agreement?

Collaboration agreements regulate the relationship of collaborators working on a project together. These agreements help to define the relationship between the collaborators and their respective responsibilities. It is important to have the collaboration agreement in writing, and to make sure that all the key issues are addressed in the agreement. Once this has been done, conflicts can be managed and easily avoided.
