No one is as smart as all of us – rebooting collaboration


Research shows that the characteristics of, and conditions for, good collaboration are the same whether it is a Scrum team in a bank needing to collaborate with another team working in a waterfall way or a bunch of medical professionals needing to collaborate in the treatment of a person. The “how” of collaboration is context specific and this is where the differences lie. Often teams become entrained to the same ways of collaborating and need to reboot their methods. The interesting thing is that the rebooting of collaboration doesn’t need new information. It is in looking at the current methods, combining them in new ways, and experimenting with them, that teams can learn how to collaborate in different ways. This session is an experiential exploration of this hypothesis with people working in small groups on a specific collaboration issue of their choosing. They will leave with a variety of possible new ways to improve or reboot collaboration in their context which they can apply the next day.
