There is nothing soft or ordinary about true collaboration. When we work with our competitors, partners, those outside of the industry...when we hear fresh voices and consider new ways of generating value to the market, we create magic.
At Spring Street Exchange we've been engaged in facilitating collaboration on a number of fronts lately. Whether helping separate entities join together for a common goal, helping an organization seek external partners, or just aligning the efforts of people with different skills on the same team. Universally it seems, that the effort is harder than expected and the results are more impactful than anticipated.
The work of collaboration requires us to think beyond our traditional assumptions and skills sets and to empathize with our partners and customers. Innovation requires us to step into these intersections, and the frontier of healthcare lies with where previously distinct sectors now intersect.
We've relied both on personal skills, technology, and process to navigate this kind of radical collaboration. What have you been using? We'd love to hear your collab stories and questions.
