Collaboration refers to working on a team whose members all have different skills. The aim of collaboration is generally to solve a complex problem together. This may differ from cooperation in a working group, in which people with similar skills work in parallel on similar projects. For example, a team composed of web developers, designers, sales, and marketing employees with the purpose of improving user experience could be said to be collaborating. However, a group of sales employees who each have individual targets but help each other out could be said to be cooperating.
