In principle, collaboration is a great idea — and if done right, provides tremendous methods of value creation for teams, groups, and organizations. Too often in practice, however, its reality doesn't live up to the promise.
How do you develop a strategy for collaboration?
Many people work at some distance away from their team colleagues, and with the increasing geographical reach of organizations, people can be separated by many time zones. Technology enables organizations to overcome (some of) the challenges of remote collaboration, but only if it is approached from a business and human-factors perspective. Read Michael's book to learn about collaboration from this perspective, including creating a vision for collaboration, establishing governance, and leading people to success through engagement and user adoption activities. See Michael's book: Collaboration Roadmap: You've Got the Technology — Now What?
Workshops and Consulting Services with Michael
To help organizations gain a rapid boost during the development of their collaboration strategy, Michael facilitates in-house workshops. These provide a forum for your people to learn together, to gain new collaboration strategy skills, and for creating a collaborative environment. See the Collaboration Roadmap Workshop, or get in touch to ask about a workshop tailored to your specific needs and opportunities.
Crafting and Auditing Your Strategy for Collaboration
Organizations that are just starting to develop a strategy for collaboration often find it useful to secure the input and direction of an external, independent expert. For those already on the collaboration journey, having someone outside of the organization to review current status and the future direction is tremendously beneficial. Michael can help you with both of these aspects. See Michael's consulting services, Crafting a Strategy for Collaboration and Auditing Your Collaboration Strategy.
