  • In the Traditional Model, workers are organized in a clean hierarchy of authority and communication. Work roles are cleanly defined and workers are expected to perform their jobs as specified by their manager.
  • In the Hybrid Model there is a manager over the entire network, but the roles within the network are more diffuse than in the Traditional Model. Evaluation is now based on more than simple job performance; employees are expected to cooperate, to share information and resources.
  • In the Network Model the work group is now a network that extends across departmental boundaries. There is no single department head whose authority covers the entire effort. Workers are expected to not only perform their job function, but to contribute to a community.

    3. 3. Strategy for Building Collaborative Environment <ul><li>Champion and sustain from the top down </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Statement of corporate mission </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Created VP of Collaboration </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Build and implement from the bottom up </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The course! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Model and encourage middle to engage </li></ul>

    5. 5. The Traditional Model Clean, simple hierarchy of authority Well defined roles and responsibilities Distinct departmental boundaries
    6. 6. The Hybrid Model Clean, simple hierarchy of authority Looser, more diffuse job responsibilties Distinct departmental boundaries
    7. 7. The Network Model Shared, diffuse role of authority Looser, more diffuse job responsibilties Work overlaps departmental boundaries
    8. 8. Our Training Model: Test Beds <ul><li>These are the situations in which we could explore the implications and applicability of the different models: </li></ul><ul><li>Production environment </li></ul><ul><li>Project management situation </li></ul><ul><li>Product launch process </li></ul><ul><li>Product development </li></ul><ul><li>Customer service </li></ul><ul><li>Strategic planning effort </li></ul><ul><li>Classroom teaching </li></ul>
    9. 9. Rationale for Course Strategy Training Technology People Process We want to give the appropriate focus on the people and processes issues rather than assume collaboration results from training in the right tools
    10. 10. Principles of Collaboration <ul><li>Do we have a shared goal? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we know who's who? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we build status based on our actions? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we agree that our behavior can be regulated according to our shared values? </li></ul><ul><li>Are we interacting in a shared space that is appropriate to our goals? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we relate to each other in smaller numbers? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we have easy ways to share ideas and information? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we know who belongs and who doesn't </li></ul><ul><li>Can we trade knowledge, support, ideas? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we easily indicate our opinions and preferences? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we track our evolution? </li></ul>
