Collaboration is a crucial area to embrace for your business to build a successful innovative company.

It is important within your business and the best results I’ve seen are when I have had the same approach with customers, suppliers and other key business partners.

You need to create an environment where people are comfortable collaborating, sharing their ideas and knowledge. For this to succeed all members of your company should seek open and honest feedback and listen and act on it.

The following techniques and approaches will help you to get collaboration going:

  1. Look outside your industry for new ideas for possible solutions or ideas.
  2. Encourage debate – Is your business a safe space for build to hold diverse opinions.
  3. Build or create multi-disciplinary teams to review specific issues or problems to get a fresh view on problems and opportunities.
  4. Break down silo’s and boost learning and development skills in key areas such as problem solving and idea generation and performance improvement.

We’d love to hear your ideas or discussion on what you have in place within your organisations to help collaboration and innovation happen.
