Traditional business is dead. We now operate in a virtually borderless world where organisations need to react at light speed, 24 hours a day.

Is it any wonder that the ability to effectively collaborate across organisational silos is now a premium leadership capability?

It’s not just organisations that are evolving, everything is being rewritten; consumer trends, B2B, B2C, technology. From insurance to healthcare, leaders are increasingly required to operate beyond their own organisational unit.

Collaboration authority Phil Preston has written a succinct and actionable guide to the 7 steps businesses need to take to become a collaborative organisation.
