Creating a Collaborative Organization
We are forced to collaborate more and more in our organizations due to the increased external pressure on our organizations and the complexity of the problems we are solving. Conflicts and mis-alignment are inevitable. Most organizations lack tools and principles for resolving problems in the interfaces between different units, departments, or teams. Discovering where the trouble is and negotiating a solution is one of the key skills managers, team leaders, and internal change agents need.
Most important decisions involve allocating scarce resources and deciding who get what. It is not enough anymore to just push your own agenda or reaching your KPI’s. We need to start prioritizing what is good for the organizational goals and creating internal win-wins to enable a successful and collaborative organization.
During the course you will learn how to:
- Map out the interactions of an organization and defining the interface to improve
- Needs analysis to understand peoples goals and constraints
- Defining objectives that encourage collaboration
- Creating a collaborative atmosphere during meetings
- Theory and tools to define and lead a behavioral change
- Understanding power balances when collaboration does not happen
- Building networks and getting to internal win-win situations
A one-day course with a mix of theory, tools, and practical examples. We will use examples from the course participants when working with the tools and reflecting.
Who is this course for?
Managers, Team leaders, Agile coaches, Scrum masters, and other internal change agents.
