“We have to abandon the conceit that isolated personal actions are going to solve this crisis. Our policies have to shift.” Al Gore
Currently a common challenge felt by all sectors has to learn how to do more with less.
There are many examples where considered collaboration has benefitted all parties.
The three UK Armed Forces (Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force) historically had their own recruitment offices. Now they share a number of things including office space. Given that they all fishing from the same pond this was a brave thing to do to. This came about for number of reasons.
The recruitment process at the initial stage was very similar and is now common, So they tend to share when their own quota has been met. This is what we call referrals in the business world.
Another area of collaboration in the private sector is with hotels and bed-and-breakfast establishment cross referring when their own beds nights are filled. Additionally working together and collaborating (seen on line) gives them more marketing spend, power and reach.
This also currently affects schools. Currently the demographic is such that there are more places and children. They too are all fishing form the same pond. Is there a way, by collaboration that they can avoid fighting for the same few children? Is there an oversupply places? Is there a way to use the spare capacity?
By looking a little deeper it is possible that organisations and businesses of all sizes can learn form collaboration.
