The Power of Collaboration

Book Description

To succeed these days your organization must create amazing results.

Your employees and teams may be quite capable of handling their specific areas of focus, but unless you get them to work together, your products, services, and profits will suffer. While progress has been made, maximizing collaboration is still a challenge for many companies. They need a new approach.

Over the last quarter century, California’s Silicon Valley has become synonymous with building complex, successful businesses. Companies and leaders there have succeeded because they did more than apply existing business models—they created a new model for collaboration.

Dr. Thea Singer Spitzer has combined her longstanding expertise on this subject with innovative thinking, research, and focused interviews with Silicon Valley leaders to create a practical framework for the next epoch of collaboration. The Power of Collaboration shows how any company, anywhere, can adapt to achieve its goals. This cutting-edge title features:

  • Narratives about collaboration from top leaders in Silicon Valley.

  • A sensible, straightforward collaboration framework.

  • Positive, realistic hints for adapting that framework to your organization.


  • With The Power of Collaboration as your guide, those amazing results will be surprisingly easy to achieve.
