Recently I came across a new buzzword for me IBM JAM, on investigating a bit on google I found out that its a mean of collaborative thinking and deduction process among large group of people. IBM is the pioneer of this process, who used this to organize collaborative thinking among their employees.
Its not about one single technology, but its a collection of technologies , whose purpose is to deduce collaborative opinion and understanding about a set of topics. The whole process is well defined, and the goals that are to be achived are set in advance.
I found few detials listed on this page
