The 10 C's ladder of Synergic Collaboration and Growth


Published on

This presentation is from my lecture at the Israel Knowledge Management Forum Conference that took place March 2013 at the Open University Campus at Raanana.

Based on the incredibly smart and insightful concept by Jack Ring.

What are the steps to take on the road from the lonely islands of solitary work to the large continent of collaboration?
from narrow scoping to broad sharing and co-learning?
from limited productivity to top synergic efficiency?
OK, you got the point

These are the 10 steps. From C to C to reach the Complete Co-Convergence

  13. 13. So how can we put it to use?1. Set a meeting with your group in a casual & fun settingShow this scale and have an open discussion• At which level are we within our team• At which level are we within our larger group• At which level are we within the organization• At which level are we within cross-unit workgroups• At which level are we in relation to family, peers on the internet, business partnersand customers• At which level is our organization

  15. 15. So how can we put it to use?1. Figure out what are the main reasons for a high level on some engagementsand to a lower level at others? What are the facilitators or the barriers thatyou experience?2. Now, think together and find how we can move up the ladder• Focus on moving up 1 or 2 steps only (don’t ever try to jump on a ladder…)• Discuss why are reach higher levels in some cases and lower levels in other cases –what are the causes – work processes? Culture? Other causes?• Set 2-3 action items to mitigate the hurdles that you found and to achieve the goal ofmoving up one step (or two steps for the daring)• Set time limits to achieve this3. Set timely get-togethers and benchmarks to keep on top of progress4. After this was successful and the new level has become a habit for theteam, repeat it to move one level higher again
