We’ve all felt the frustration that arises when projects don’t go as planned; when progress seems to stall and teams just don’t seem to work well together.
In most organizations, collaboration is a requirement for making or doing anything, whether we recognize it or not. We assemble teams from across the organization, selecting individuals to fill various responsibilities and skills. We purchase collaboration tools and platforms, and pay thousands (and in some cases millions) of dollars to be trained on methodologies and processes that are supposed to improve our collaboration and make projects run smoother. And yet, things still go wrong. Rarely do we step back and look at the realities that make for good collaboration the and the real obstacles getting in our way.
In this talk we’ll look at commonly overlooked challenges and solutions for collaboration and that organizations face and how the characteristics of an organization’s culture are often the real barrier to creative productivity.
