Reducing time to market through cross-organisational collaboration

The Challenge

Microsoft is one of the most recognizable names in computing, globally. We were asked to help the Microsoft Corporate, External, and Legal Affairs team with collaboration and trust.

The Overview

We ran an interactive dialogue session on Leveraging Open Collaboration to Fuel Sustainable Growth, focusing on the idea that “we” is better than “me” and how to balance teams with contribution archetypes. Topics covered include how to empower psychological safety, open behaviors, and how each individual offers a unique contribution value. Participants commented how implementing the ideas could help reduce resistance to cross-collaborative efforts and decrease time to market.

The Results
