I believe several times a week for a productive installation 
in a 500 person organisation in the secretary scenario.

There is another scenario, which I have also mentioned in
where an organisational unit uses common folders, e.g. for events.

I see a rise of "need for coordination" in customer installations
when more people get remote clients via less reliable internet connections,
especially more laptops. I believe the "need for coordination" case to appear 
their each working day throught the organisation.
