When solving thorny collaboration problems, why do engineers and managers always seem to turn to tools as their first option?

It’s because tools are tangible, and they give us a sense that we’re doing *something* about a problem. However, the vast majority of the time, tools brought in without thought or understanding of both the current culture and process can be doomed to the worst kind of failure - user apathy.

How do we use tools to solve collaboration problems instead of creating more issues?
