“Hansen’s book is a good and practical read — an excellent example of making academic research accessible” Federal Computer Week
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.

“What is the difference between good and bad collaboration?” The question might surprise some people, because it challenges the widely held premise that all collaboration is good, particularly in a business setting. But management professor Morten T. Hansen’s extensive research in the field proves that some collaborative practices actually waste time, energy and resources. Instead, leaders need to promote, in Hansen’s words, “disciplined collaboration.” He puts forth a useful model that includes assessing opportunities, identifying common obstacles and offering tailored solutions. Throughout, he highlights case studies that demonstrate how organizations succeed – and fail – due to collaboration. getAbstract recommends this distinctive book to executives and leaders who wish to unite people, in a smart way, to achieve a common goal.

Collaboration covers all areas - personal, team, and organizational - that affect effectively working together across boundaries. This book is filled with both information to make one think as well as easily actionable items that you can undertake to determine readiness or set collaboration in motion. I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the topic or trying to figure out if collaboration will work for you. It would also be a great resource for those who wonder why collaboration is not working in your organization.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
