#10 Ralph Hamman - So You Think You're Collaborating?
The recent Marikane Mine shooting tragedy in South Africa is a complex scenario of multiple parties with multiple problems. Many journalists, politicians and international advocates of peace have voiced out against the tragedy, and Ralph Hamman- lecturer at the UCT Graduate School of Business- does not attempt to do the same. What he does do, however, is to propose a simple idea that is surprisingly chronically misunderstood and under-utilized: Collaboration. He argues that we need to get better at collaborating- especially across organizational and institutional divides. But it's not as easy as we might expect.
