It’s clear from our conversations with customers around the world that we’re in the early stages of a fundamental shift in business. It’s the decade of collaboration. A time of flash communities and knowledge accidents. A time when video, virtualization, social media and mobility influence everything we do. And when employees from any remote corner of an organization can provide the spark for your next important innovation.
But only if you set the stage for collaboration.
Building a collaborative organization isn’t easy. It takes a transformative approach to culture, processes and technology—and an unwavering commitment from top to bottom. Do it and you will be rewarded with an energized organization that can adapt quickly to changing markets and deliver tangible results.
That’s why I recently partneredwith my colleague, Ron Ricci, Cisco’s VP of Corporate Positioning, to write The Collaboration Imperative, a book that dives into the culture, process and technology dimensions of successful collaboration. It offers practical tips and strategies for making companies more collaborative and looks at how some of the world’s leading companies are sharpening their collaboration edge.
We also introduce some surprising facts. For example, did you know that….
The biggest barriers to collaboration are not technical—they are cultural and organizational in nature
Collaboration can’t be deployed; it must be embraced
It’s not enough to change roles; you have to change rewards
Collaboration requires stronger personal communications skills
Although collaboration is about decentralizing, it has to start at the top
The average return on collaboration is four times a company’s initial investment
We’d love to hear your experiences as you embrace collaboration. What best practices are you most proud of? What issues are you facing? And what lessons have you learned that you want to share? Let’s keep the conversation going….
