Design is about envisioning a better future, and working towards making it happen. Changing the world around us by creating things is innately human. When we create together, magic can happen - or disaster can strike. These days, we take a job because of the people we work with. A great team is key for a startup to get investment. We strive to work in multi-skilled, balanced teams and end up spending a lot of time with our colleague-friends. Collaboration is such a joy, but often incredibly difficult.

In this talk, I look into what makes people play well together, and share what has helped me collaborate better. I share what I've learned about collaboration from UX, agile software development and lean startup, about cognitive diversity, the role of values and vision, and include some practical 'collaboration hacks'.
