Description:

"Working together effectively collaborating is the key to competitive advantage. This book will help any manager understand what to do (and what not to do) to support collaboration in their organization." Susan G. Cohen. senior research scientist, Center for Effective Organizations, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California "Finally, a book that goes beyond the a??how-toa?? of team building and answers the critical question, a??How do I create a collaborative organization that reaps the harvest of long-term investment in teams?a?? The a??ten principles of collaborative organizationsa?? outlined in this book are invaluable." Seth McCutcheon, CEO, Domicile Design Group LLC "Building on their research on team collaboration, the authors catapult us to the next level the collaborative organization. The authors show how collaboration is deliberately created, versus relying on luck. Imagine having an entire organization with the characteristics of a high-performing work team!" Jack Zenter, vice chairman, Provant "The authors have done a great service in helping us shift our focus from thinking in terms of a??teamsa?? to thinking in terms of a??collaboration.a?? This broader perspective can help us achieve our goal of optimizing synergy, without being constrained by the rules of teams." James (Jim) C. Joiner, program director, program and project management, University of Texas at Dallas "A practical, business-focused guide to create successful teaming and increased collaboration for business in the 21st century."
