One of the great leadership challenges of our time is to drive effective collaboration throughout organizations. Morten Hansen has long been recognized as one of the world foremost experts on this topic, starting with his award-winning doctoral dissertation at Stanford Business School and his pathbreaking book “Collaboration” that has been used by many executives and leaders in business, government and non-profits to reap results from better collaboration. In this thought-provoking session, Hansen starts with the premise that “bad collaboration is worse than none at all.” The idea is that not all collaboration is a good thing; rather, the key is to implement disciplined collaboration that maximizes results. Hansen offers practical frameworks for identifying barriers to collaboration and describes how the powerful concept of “T-shaped management” improves collaboration performance.
