  • Thanks Michael. I left that slide a bit ambiguous - gets a bit of discussion going. I've seen many situations where group think, harmony, collectivism and other forms of 'collaboration' produce mediocre results. It's no coincidence that some of the more remarkable outcomes of innovation were developed behind closed doors with real leadership (even if it is an autocrat) at the helm.

  • Really useful presentation, thank you. The only slide that I was confused by was the one that stated a barrier being 'too much collaboration'. I think I can guess what this was aiming at, but I would be interested in knowing what other people / the Author meant.
