Resources: Collaboration

Collaboration lies deep at the heart of what we do. Research into the future of work draws increasingly on what we can project about how people will work together in a globalised marketplace, and how networks and sharing will evolve. Collaboration has always been a focus for us - Lynda Gratton's book Hot Spots - Why Some Teams, Workplaces and Organisations Buzz with Energy - and Others Don't is all about uncovering the secret to collaborative energy, and her article for Harvard Business Review, Eight Ways to Build Collaborative Teams is one of the top ten reads on this topic. Whether it's about getting the most out of a globalised workforce, working with partners or promoting cross-generational teamwork, today's organisations have to deal with collaboration to an unprecedented extent. On this page you can access a range of different collaboration materials, including an exclusive download from one of Lynda's books.

If you'd like to know more about our approach to collaboration, including our team diagnostic, drop Tina Schneidermann an email.
