Summary

What makes the difference between your collaboration's failure or success? Collaboration: What Makes It Work, Second Edition answers this question with an up-to-date and in-depth review of collaboration research. Here's what's new in the 2001 edition:

  • An important new success factor (there are twenty in all) related to the collaboration's pace of development and its evolution over time
  • Improved factor descriptions with fresh examples based on experience of organizations throughout the world during the 1990s
  • Research drawn from an additional pool of 281 research studies
  • An expanded bibliography and up-to-date list of collaboration experts

Plus, it offers several tools not included in the first edition:

  • The Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory, a practical tool for assessing how your collaboration is doing on the twenty success factors, along with instructions on interpretation
  • Examples of how organizations have used the inventory and a case study illustrating how one collaboration assessed itself and used the results to take action to improve its success
  • New ideas for using the factors based on examples of how others used the first edition

This is not an academic report, but practical information to help you benefit from the experience of others. Use this research to:
