We believe in today’s world of work it is essential that organizations build their internal capacity to collaborate both inside and outside the organization. Effective collaboration will enrich the process and support stronger outcomes. Successful managers must navigate complex organizational systems, engage and inform stakeholders, and ensure that their teams are resourced and able to complete their task. We know that collaboration requires the right structures be in place, roles and functions are clearly defined, and those engaged in the collaboration can communicate effectively. We respect the differences and the different perspectives that people bring to this work, and we use conflict, just as much as agreement, as a way to stimulate open-dialogue and action.
