In the last decade the word “Synergy” has been used prolifically.
Everyone knows the value of Synergy; its achievement is the “holy grail” of businesses, teams, alliances, and mergers/acquisitions.
However, the word is bantered as a dream or aspiration; something leaders hope to attain, exhort to their minions, and spend considerable time and money hoping to bring to reality.
Unfortunately, the success level in reaching that synergistic level of excellence has been dismal, and those who did reach it often found it unsustainable.
Over the past half century members of our team have explored finding a “systems design architecture” for synergy. Our quest has taken us into the examination of thousands of business cases – some studied with an analytic eye, others from first hand, trial and error, hands-on experience.
Consistently we concluded that the number one source of synergy has been through high levels of Collaborative Excellence.
We have codified the dimensions of Collaborative Excellence into a highly effective, replicable, and sustainable system we can deliver to any organization or alliance in the world.
