Many of these tools are designed to be scalable, making them attractive for planning and implementing on both personal and enterprise-level projects.

We put together a list of 50 team collaboration tools that can be deployed in both small and large group settings. These tools offer multiple functionalities, but we’ve categorized them according to their main purpose.
