Enabling Collaboration

As we are all aware, collaboration is “the name of the game” in business and all kinds of organizations today. The world has become a complex web of interdependent actors—some are competing, while others are learning to collaborate in new and innovative ways by establishing, strategic partnerships and establishing networks of ecosystem partners to create new opportunities, bring innovative products and services to market, continuously re-invent themselves and help solve some of the world’s most difficult problems. Those that collaborate in this way are entering new stages of formation and complexity through digital reinvention, ecosystem design, multi-stakeholder programs and social innovation. Because of the complexity of the collaboration, the number of actors involved and opportunities missed if no time is spent to innovate and co-create. More importantly, collaboration requires groups to get to know each other from a psychosocial perspective to build the collective muscle to communicate clearly and authentically, learn together and cut away what is not relevant for success. Once they have developed the collaboration structure, operating principles and values, social contracts and culture, they will have also built the collaboration capability to tackle the more difficult final negotiations pieces, not to mention the fact they know what is left to negotiate. It only makes sense that all businesses combinations that require collaboration have a concordant process and method to guide their success. Enabling Collaboration – Achieving Success through Strategic Alliances and Partnerships provides practitioners interested in forming all kinds of collaborations a practical roadmap and methodology to do just that. Help create the structures, processes and opportunities that arise from collaborative approaches to organizational and societal success. Author: Martin Echavarria

Into the mountains

On December 22nd 1972, the world discovered that sixteen of the forty-five passengers of the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 that crashed in the Andes seventy days earlier were still alive. Pedro Algorta has never spoken of his experience but he breaks his silence of over 40 years and gives a first-hand account of one of the most incredible stories of human survival and team spirit. Pedro delves into how he personally lived those seventy days in the cordillera, the day-to-day struggle to survive, and how with difficulty, a lot of hard work and strong team spirit the group created a survival machine in the mountains. Each one of us has our own mountain – our own story – and understanding it helps us make sense of our path in life and to see the way ahead. We are all capable of surviving our Andes.

Brands and Rousers

How is it that some brands and companies manage to last decades, fending off crises and turbulence and continuing to prosper, while others fail? What does it take to achieve sustainable value and success? In this timely and important book, Luis Gallardo argues that executives and managers not only have to think holistically (in terms of strategy, structure and operations), but also act personally (to become “rousers”) if they are to succeed in these ever-changing times. As a manager, you have to engage and people, from top to bottom, and provide an understanding of the company’s mission and brand. As well as taking a broad, systems approach, you have to rouse (ignite and excite) the people in your organisation in order to make things happen. This balance between strategy and tactics, big picture and detail, planning and action, corporate direction and personal responsibility is the key to progress and resilience for your company in today’s turbulent times.

Disruption Denial

We live in a world of constant change and disruption caused mainly by new technology. Yet, in business, there is widespread apathy, paralysis and confusion in many established companies in face of the obvious scope, scale, reach and pace of disruptive change. Why? Because Denial is the natural default response, given how executives’ brains function and how they are trained.
This important book examines why companies seem paralysed in the headlights of onrushing digital and other disruption. In analysing and understanding this tendency towards denial in companies, the author is then able to guide executives to begin seeing a new perspective to coping with the transformation challenge that faces them. Full of insightful case studies and lessons gained from the author’s work with leading companies, this is a hugely timely book when virtually all companies and executives must deal with the threat of disruptive change.

Pushing the boundaries

This is the autobiography of one of the most influential management consultants of recent times. Herbert Henzler grew up in the German village of Neckarhausen during the Second World War. Starting his career as a sales apprentice with Shell, he went on to study at the universities of Saarland, Ludwig-Maximillian and California, Berkeley, where he received his PhD in economics. In 1970, Henzler accepted an offer to join McKinsey & Company, a rapidly growing firm that would eventually become the world’s leading consultancy group. Working in its German office, Henzler quickly rose to Partner in 1975 and then Director in 1978. His spectacular rise continued when, in 1985, Henzler became head of McKinsey’s German office and one of the most powerful management consultants in the world. Honest and at times direct, this book provides a rare insight into the world of management consultancy and how one man made it to the top by constantly pushing the boundaries.
