Does Your Organization Have a Collaborative Culture?

October 16, 2012 by Bruce Jones, Senior Programming Director, Disney Institute

George Head, Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering said this about creating a collaborative culture, “It’s about creating an environment where people can think and develop new ideas and new technologies.”

A truly collaborative culture is one in which people feel comfortable not only expressing their ideas but also analyzing, critiquing and acting upon them. The key to the success of a collaborative culture is building genuine relationships between people so that ideas can be expressed honestly and without fear.

The Five Key Components of a Collaborative Culture are:

• Passion for the purpose
• Shared Values
• Communication
• Trust
• Variety of Perspectives

What can you do/have you done to ensure that your organization is creating a collaborative culture?
