 How to Save the World
Collaboration could be improved by (a) creating a lot more opportunities to practice it, (b) speaking out when supposedly or potentially collaborative activities aren't, and fixing them so they are, and (c) ousting the egos and outing the wallflowers in collaborative groups so participation is equal.
Collaboration is much more than any of these things, but, sadly, because so many large business environments are so dysfunctional, it is almost impossible to find great examples of business collaboration anywhere.
Business needs to raise the bar by which it assesses its collaborative performance to a comparable high level, and appreciate that many of the attributes (competitiveness, hierarchy, the cult of leadership, and sheer mind-boggling size) that are the hallmarks of the modern corporation work directly against the achievement of greatness in collaboration.
