July 16, 2009

Yes, Spring has come and gone and now the lazy days of summer lie ahead. For some anyway. While many go on vacation (perhaps to a Six Flags for a new coaster ride or two) others are still reading away during the hot months of the year. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

Collaboration

By 800-CEO-READ

A recent post by author Bob Sutton suggests that Jack and Todd may have a title to include in an updated edition of their 100 Best Book: Morten Hansen's Collaboration. Whether or not Jack and Todd agree, Sutton points out some great facets to the book - cost and benefits of collaboration, cultivating T-shaped management, and unifying people. Hansen's book avoids ideology and theory and provides concrete evidence and data that support his ideas. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

Full Description

In Collaboration, author Morten Hansen takes aim at what many leaders inherently know: in today's competitive environment, companywide collaboration is an imperative for successful strategy execution, yet the sought-after synergies are rarely, if ever, realized. In fact, most cross-unit collaborative efforts end up wasting time, money, and resources. How can managers avoid the costly traps of collaboration and instead start getting the results they need? In this book, Hansen shows managers how to get collaboration right through "disciplined collaboration"-- a practical framework and set of tools managers can use to: - Assess when--and when not--to pursue collaboration across units to achieve goals - Identify and overcome the four barriers to collaboration - Get people to buy into the larger picture, even when they own only a small piece of it - Be a "T-Shaped Manager," collaborating across divisions while still working deeply in your own unit - Create networks across the organization that are not large, but nimble and effective Based on the author's long-running research, in-depth case studies, and company interviews, Collaboration delivers practical advice and tools to help your organization collaborate--for real results.
