Great article on Collaborative Organizations

We know that none of us is as smart as all of us, right? I love to come across work by others that speak to the core of what this project is all about…collaboration and teamwork. Earlier today, I came across the following article: 12 Habits of Highly Collaborative Organizations (the article and model below are the from Chess Media Group)

What I love about this article, and why I am recommending it, is that Jacob Morgan gets it! Collaboration is all about flexibility, impact, and value. Collaboration can’t be forced, but it can be encouraged. Too often, when we promote collaboration, we don’t think about the individual differences in personality that influence the way people see collaboration. Instead, we are thinking from a purely skill/knowledge set approach. If you want to breed greater collaboration, give people space, let it be on their terms, and be sure to provide them with value.

Read the article and also, check out Jacob’s book – The Collaborative Organization!
