It’s no surprise that collaboration is key to driving innovation and organizational success. Done well collaboration can break down silos, spur innovation, and spark new product designs. Done poorly it can turn into nothing more than a time suck leading to overwork and employee burnout.
Harvard Business Review reports that employees spend 50% more of their workday in collaborative activities than they did 20 years ago. Additionally, it’s estimated the distribution of collaborative work is often lopsided with only 3% to 5% of employees driving 20% to 35% of value-added collaborations.1 This lopsidedness shows up in another HBR survey of senior managers who indicated that 71% of the meetings they attend are inefficient and unproductive. This data makes evident that workplace collaboration, while used extensively, is not being optimized to drive both innovation and employee engagement.
Follow these tips to ensure your collaborative efforts are both efficient and effective.
