Innovation by Sharing. How Collaborating on Learning Can Benefit Your Company

Being connected to society is essential to long-term profitability. If a company is not collaborating on its learning, it will not be innovative enough. At first sight, you might think sharing your learning would prevent you from being the number one in your industry, but the challenges we’re facing right now can only be addressed (quickly) together. Thus, being secretive and focusing on itself inhibits a company from being innovative. In a sense, your company needs to be influenced by outside ideas! A company, especially if it claims to be Agile, is expected to be aware of its ecosystem. Otherwise, it will be viewed as untrustworthy, and distrust will undermine all aspects of the business (including finding clients and talent).

In this session, we will explore how cross-functional teams constructed along BOSSA nova principles not only reach across the entire company but into the ecosystem to comprehend the company holistically.

Problem framing and reframing Members reframe views individually and collectively based on internal and external insights. 2. Boundaryless solution generation The team becomes boundaryless as information is sought and given freely. 3. Iterative experimentation Experimentation is frequent and bold; it is both individual and collective. 4. Integrating Perspectives Members seek out views that may be disconfirming or challenging. The team acquires the collective memories that enable sudden leaps of insight. ©ProcessesforSynergistTeamLearning,adaptedfromKasl,Marsick,andDeChant(1997,p.x)
