There are very few things more important in the business world than collaboration- between businesses, between staff, and between companies and their community. Sharing ideas and resources promotes professional development, improves flexibility and engagement, builds work process foundations, works towards the betterment of industries as a whole, and helps drive innovation for the future.
Some tips on successful collaborative best practice:
- Provide rewards and incentives for proactive approaches to communication
- Have company leadership set a good example
- Define guidelines and frameworks for collaboration clearly
- Be flexible, encourage feedback, and adapt continuously to changes as they arise
- Approach from a variety of angles; internally and via external networks
