I’m working on a economics question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
The three videos reference how collaborations succeed or fail.
1. Is there a relationship between the success or failure of a collaboration and understanding where the collaboration falls on the spectrum? Why?
2. How can a small organization who wishes to collaborate with a large organization like Microsoft, ensure there is equal footing or lack of dominance by the larger partner? What steps could you take to ensure your smaller organization would not be overtaken or acquired by the larger organization? Even if the organization size doesn’t have the same disparity as a small firm vs. Microsoft, how do you ensure there is not a dominant partner?
3. In the check list for collaboration (see PowerPoint) it states to ask your partner were your collaboration falls on the spectrum. Why is this important?
4. What other basic ground work should you consider before even beginning the conversation about collaboration?
