Is Collaboration the New Greenwashing?

Is Collaboration the New Greenwashing? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Collaboration is the new "it" trend in business strategy circles these days. Everyone is talking about it. But, does collaboration deliver on its promise? Or is it at risk of simply becoming a new form of "greenwashing" as companies talk the talk, but don't walk the walk?

Walking Talk = KSF


Walking the collaborative talk is a Key Success Factor. "What do you think," have there ever been 4 more loaded words in the English language? We've all been in the meeting when someone who really doesn't want to know the answer asks that question. 

We get the culture we create. If your company is open, honest and supportive the answer to the most loaded question in the world will be collaboration. Collaboration doesn't mean we always love each other. Collaboration can be contentious and messy, but it beats the alternative. 

Recently I wrote about The Commons Revolution (http://www.atlanticbt.com/blog/the-commons-revolution/ ) and created a Commons Revolution feed on Scoop.it (http://www.scoop.it/t/collaborative-competition-revolution ). Collaboration becomes MORE likely when there are large support systems such as The Commons. We do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

All that sounds great, but the rubber still meets the road when someone asks, "What do you think". I hope you work in an environment where such a question is matched with messy contentious collaboration since that is when life is most fun and your process most aligned with the future’s undeniable trend.

Tom Hood's curator insight, April 3, 2013 7:38 AM

Leadership is about connecting and collaborating. The number 1 slill identified by IBM's Global 2013 CEO study is collaboration. It is also one of the top five comoetencies for CPAs in the future from the CPA Horizons 2025 report. Sharing knowledge has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process.                                                                                                      I like this quote in the article, "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony."



Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 3, 2013 6:14 PM

Does the Internet Make You Smarter?

Does the Internet Make You Smarter? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Amid the silly videos and spam are the roots of a new reading and writing culture, says Clay Shirky.

Digital media have made creating and disseminating text, sound, and images cheap, easy and global. The bulk of publicly available media is now created by people who understand little of the professional standards and practices for media.

Instead, these amateurs produce endless streams of mediocrity, eroding cultural norms about quality and acceptability, and leading to increasingly alarmed predictions of incipient chaos and intellectual collapse.

1.8 billion

Estimated number of Internet users world-wide

But of course, that's what always happens. Every increase in freedom to create or consume media, from paperback books to YouTube, alarms people accustomed to the restrictions of the old system, convincing them that the new media will make young people stupid. This fear dates back to at least the invention of movable type.

As Gutenberg's press spread through Europe, the Bible was translated into local languages, enabling direct encounters with the text; this was accompanied by a flood of contemporary literature, most of it mediocre. Vulgar versions of the Bible and distracting secular writings fueled religious unrest and civic confusion, leading to claims that the printing press, if not controlled, would lead to chaos and the dismemberment of European intellectual life.

Cooperative learning is any structured, sytematic learning activity in which groups of learners work together to achieve a common goal.  It is a high impact strategy because it:

 

ensures engagement

facilitates formative assessment

facilitates differentiated instruction

allows students to collaboratively construct knowledge

develops students' communication skills

prepares students for life after school

 

It is most successful when teachers:

 

understand learning structure

create positive interdependence

teach expectations

teach social skills

determine optimum makeup of groups

manage time successfully

use an attention signal

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 2013 11:48 AM

The opening lines are about traditional versus collaborative leaders. I think there has always been collaborative leadership. Great leaders through history surrounded themselves not with sycophants but with those who came with questions. Community emerged, trust revealed, and greatness shone through. We need to believe we are not reinventing the wheel. It exists and needs to be dusted off.

Damarque's comment, April 16, 2013 11:05 AM
Ivon makes a good point. Is this not true however for most 'new' business and leaderships ideas. Even with (internet) technology as major disruptor in many industries, the fundamentals of value creation (management/leadership and innovation) have not changed. At the root of all value creation (which is the purpose of business) lies collaboration. The more unique the players in the collaboration game, the more value can be created, provided the game is played according to some key rules of engagement. Yes, collaboration as a powerful concept is not new. Facilitating productive collaboration is a whole different story. Perhaps that is where the challenges and opportunities for new leadership lie.

What in the Heck Is Co-Marketing?

What in the Heck Is Co-Marketing? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Marketing is constantly evolving, which means marketers have to learn a lot of new strategies, tactics, and terminology (ahem, buzzwords) all the time. One of those words you've probably heard is "co-marketing," which ... really ... isn't all that new. It just doesn't get talked about a lot.

But why is that? Not sure. Maybe because it's kind of a weird territory in which marketers act more like networkers and salespeople than email marketers, content creators, and data analysts. Regardless, co-marketing is just a form of relationship marketing. And I think it'd be helpful for other relationship marketers to get a breakdown of what the heck co-marketing really is, and have accessible inroads to get started with it -- even if you don't have connections with industry big-guns.

Co-Marketing vs. Co-Branding

Companies have been co-branding for years. Nike partnered up with Apple to create the ultimate work-out and music experience. Hershey's partnered with Betty Crocker to create the chocolateiest brownie ever. These two companies combined their products together to create an even more valuable product.

Co-marketing is slightly different -- it's the opportunity for two brands to work together on promotional efforts with a co-branded offer. In a co-marketing partnership, both companies promote a piece of content or a product, and share results of that promotion with each other. 

Why would any brand take part in co-marketing? First of all, your marketing efforts are doubled! Think about all the benefits you get from promoting a piece of content or a new product. Now think about all the benefits you would get if two companies promoted it. And through co-marketing, you're able to reach a brand new audience, one you may not have been able to connect and engage with on your own.

Tom Hood's curator insight, February 10, 2013 8:16 AM

In our five years working with the CPA Profession's best and brightest young leaders (AICPA, MACPA, UACPA, LSCPA Leadership Academies), I worry that many of our current leaders are not taking the responsibility to develop new leaders fast enough. Yet when you get these young leaders in a room, it is easy to pull their greatness out of them.


What can we do to develop more leaders fast enough as two baby boomers will retire for every Gen-Xer available to replace them?


Love the curator insights:

The term 'clarion call of the digital age' was used to describe the individualism of the digital age.

Another definition from Education-2020

 

http://education-2020.wikispaces.com/Connectivism

 

" In the theory, learning occurs through connections within networks. The model uses the concept of a network with nodes and connections to define learning. Learners recognize and interpret patterns and are influenced by the diversity of networks, strength of ties and their context. Transfer occurs by connecting to and adding nodes and growing personal networks."


This concept supports the necessity of dialog with technology to permit time, distance, or other barriers to be lowered. The results will be better informed individuals and groups.

Knowledge is power! However, today this is a truth with modification since knowledge becomes outdated much faster than before. Consequently, you will gain less if you save the knowledge in your own hideouts. The challenge for companies and the public sector but also schools is to manage to translate individual knowledge into organizational awareness and then to manage the knowledge-base with constant updates, focus on usability and pedagogy.
