Tanya Lau's insight:

Reasons why efforts to increase collaboration within organisations may fail - overhyping, undercosting (not accounting for the political difficulties of breaking down established silos), overcollaborating (assuming that every task should be collaborative), getting the problem wrong (assuming that lack of collaboration due to lack of social tools - may be cultural, organisational...), applying wrong solution (> usually as a result of misdiagnosing the problem)
