  3. 3. Collaboration – Rationale “Firms come into being in order to enable human beings to achieve collaboratively what they could not achieve alone. If one accepts this as the true purpose of any organization, then the main focus of executives’ attention should be on how to foster collaboration within their companies” Hansen & Nohria, MIT MR 2004 © Kristensen Consulting 2009 3
  4. 4. The Big Picture “The only thing that gives an organization a competitive edge… is what it knows, how it uses what it knows, and how fast it can know something new” Laurence Prusak, IBM “If only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times as profitable” Lew Platt, former HP CEO The majority of work is collaborative Knowledge: 60-80 % of our time is spent on interactions Trend: Portion of interactions growing [Gartner, McKinsey] Technology plays an increasingly important role Reducing the cost of interactions Making it easier to find relevant knowledge and experts New perspectives on knowledge and competitiveness Possible to achieve a quantum leap in productivity The million dollar question is – how to do this? © Kristensen Consulting 2009 4

  11. 11. Statements for Reflection and Discussion The current trend where the office is optimised for efficiency... ...is rapidly making the office obsolete because... ...the things you can achieve in the office you can achieve, often equally well or even better, in other contexts, and... ...the office starts at an efficiency disadvantage due to... ...logistics and commuting times, and because... ...it comes with a hefty price tag, e.g. compared to One Alfred Place. The only viable long term value proposition for the office... ...is therefore one that reinstates the workplace as a place where you do things you can’t do anywhere else... ...which enables new levels of knowledge worker effectiveness... ...or one where the efficiency gains offset the additional cost of the office compared to alternative solutions. © Kristensen Consulting 2009 11
