Create Collaboration as an Organizational Competency


Collaboration is a mutually beneficial and well-defined relationship entered into by two or more people or organizations to achieve common goals. -Paul W. Mattessich, Ph.D.

Do you believe collaboration is too frustrating and time-consuming to be worth the effort? Much of the friction created by collaboration can be reduced through simple process improvements. This workshop teaches participants how to use scientifically proven best practices for effective collaboration.

The effectiveness of a collaborative problem-solving process is measured not by how quickly you can generate a solution, but by how quickly you can implement it -David Straus, M.Arch.
