I'm thinking about...
Collaboration at a systems level doesn't just happen. It's an intentional choice - and a strategic one.
As I said in my recent APolitical article,
- There has been much global activity across government departments to enable collaboration: policy initiatives, legislative changes, working groups, and strategy documents weaving in collaboration. However, the transformation towards a more collaborative, citizen-focused public sector has yet to materialise. Mostly, these activities have treated collaboration as a buzzword, from which no real change results!
- It’s only when we take an “ecosystem” approach that real change is possible and we are able to focus on optimising the collective impact of individual efforts to deliver shared value.
- I believe the key to unlocking untapped solutions and hope for mankind is to be willing to work collaboratively, across all kinds of differences. I am on a mission to build a collaborative movement that delivers shared value.
