'Successful partnerships are now essential in business as never before. Collaborative Advantage is the professional's guide to making them work effectively in real life situations.' - Sir Peter Bonfield, Former CEO, British Telecom, Senior Non-Executive, AstraZeneca and Board Member, Sony Corporation 'In the new emerging logic of our times, wealth and strategic assets are more about creation of ideas, knowledge, relationships and trust than about owning and controlling tangible things. When seeing the world with such eyes,our capacity and capability for internal and external collaboration and cocreation becomes a decisive strategic advantage.This book is a great resource offering both reasons why and hands-on examples of how such collaborative advantage can be achieved.' - Goran Carstedt, Society for Organizational Learning, Former executive at Volvo and IKEA 'Any executive pondering the fundamentals of creating a collaborative work environment would do well to study these pages.' - Sean Silverthorne, Harvard Business School's Working Knowledge web site 'For anyone looking for ideas about how collaboration might be fostered for the benefit of separate teams or units within an organization, or even between separate organizations, there is a wealth of information.' - Richard Hugman, Journal of Interprofessional Care '...the author has neatly presented the core issues based on her comprehensive and practical experience on the topic.' - Yue Xu, Journal of Management Development
