Quick Collaboration Readiness Assessment

Research from MIT Sloan finds that collaboration is not a well-developed cultural value and competency despite being mission-critical for successful management and organizational agile change leadership.  This quick assessment can help you begin evaluating your people’s ability to collaborate on five key areas for successful collaboration as outlined by Paul Matessich, Ph.D., of Wilder Research.  You can also take the complete Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory for free here. We offer a comprehensive Collaboration @ Work Workshop to help your people master and practice essential collaboration skills. Contact me for more information at [email protected].
