Hello Collaboratory Scientists!
Welcome back to Collaboratory Month 🧬
The final step in the Collaboratory method is to make a Collaboratory conclusion. (If you haven't already, formulate a question on the Step 1 post, form a hypothesis on the Step 2 post, make a Collaboratory prediction on the step 3 post, and Design and perform an experiment on the step 4 post).
To make a Collaboratory Conclusion, you need to determine whether what you believed would happen actually happened. If it did not happen, you can create a new hypothesis conduct a new experiment to prove your new theory. If what you hypothesized happened during the experimentation phase, the final step is putting together your findings and "presenting" them in the comments below.
Example: Perhaps, you want to test an experiment about whether having more meetings results in more efficient collaboration.
A good question to begin with might be: ”Does having more meetings result in a project being finished more quickly?"
A good hypothesis might be: If we decrease time spent meeting by 25%, the project will still be finished in the same time.
A good prediction might be: If my team reduces meetings by 25% (and uses that time instead for async work), then the project will be finished on the same timeline.
A good experiment might be: Reduce the total amount of time your team spends talking on zoom about a project by 25%.
A good conclusion might be: By reducing meeting times by 25%, the team's ability to hit deadlines was not impacted.
We'll award the Collaboratory badge to all Community members who ask a Collaboratory question :) Keep an eye on the main Collaboratory post to discover next steps!
Thanks for playing along in Collaboratory month!
