It takes a village. We have heard that for many years regarding child rearing. The parents among us know how true the adage can be. It takes a collaborative network of parents, grandparents, teachers and other caregivers to raise kids. The concept is useful in our professional lives too.
In a globally interconnected world, it takes a village to get anything done in business or government services. Whether it’s classic teamwork or just trying to make things happen for a customer, business today has many moving parts. Collaboration happens in big and small ways at every step in a value chain. No one goes it alone anymore.
