We have all been victims of poor collaboration. How is it that if everyone wants what is best for the organisation, we can’t seem to agree on how to achieve it? In this talk, José Huerta explores the causes of this phenomena and shares lessons learned from trying to address it.
Imagine the typical math problem: Peter builds a house in 3 days, and Jill does the same work in 4 weeks. Working together, how long would they take?
Although the logical answer would be that together they would take less time, experience tells us that when it comes to collaborating in an organisation, that is not always the case.
We have all been victims of poor collaboration: Departments that don’t talk to each other. People in the team that don’t share information. The business vs tech dichotomy.
How is it that if everyone wants what is best for the organisation, we don’t seem to agree on how to collaborate effectively to achieve it?
If you are also puzzled by these questions, don’t fret. For something so relevant and present in everyday life, we tend to know very little about it.
In this talk, we will explore some of the causes of this phenomena, what we can do about it and lessons learned from implementing some of these recommendations.
