Enabling Collaboration

As we are all aware, collaboration is ‚Äúthe name of the game‚ÄĚ in business and all kinds of organizations today. The world has become a complex web of interdependent actors‚ÄĒsome 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‚Äôs 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 ‚Äď 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¬†

Business is Beautiful Quick View

Business is Beautiful

The hard art of standing apart
Accepted wisdom tells us either that business should come before pleasure, or that the two should never be mixed. Business, it seems, was never intended to be pleasurable. During an economic crisis, in particular, business is easy to portray as a cold, unforgiving environment. But business isn‚Äôt like this. Business is people. People who come together to achieve more than is possible individually. Achievement is easily measured through profit, but value is a much bigger concept. A bank in India has been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. A man in Denmark has turned his love and compassion for his deaf wife into a business that helps millions, as well as makes millions. Business provides countless examples of companies that have achieved greatness; companies for whom profit is necessary but not sufficient condition for success. These stories and the business lessons (often unmeasurable) they provide are brilliantly captured in this highly original book. Author:¬† Jean-Baptiste Danet, Nick Liddell, Dorothy MacKenzie and Tony Allen
