The Power of Collaboration

We often hear about the power of collaboration. It is good to find examples. One example appeared in a recent issue of Public Administration Review. The short article by David Wang is entitled “A Simple Lesson about the Power of Collaboration.” He describes a collaboration among farm workers, growers, and buyers. The lessons:

1. Have a vision for how the collaboration could work (How would this collaboration look if it were productive?),

2. Stick with that vision over the long-run (You may have to make adjustments along the way but try to make your vision a reality),

3. Receive some outside support (Identify and nurture relationships with your allies),

4. Build trusting relationships (Trustworthiness).

You can find the article on page 444 of Volume 74, Issue 4.
