Collaboration Handbook: Creating, Sustaining, and Enjoying the Journey.
Winer, Michael; Ray, Karen
This book provides activities and examples for learning about creating, sustaining, and enjoying new ways of working together. The book helps to develop a new language to deal with complicated situations on the journey to collaboration. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1, "How Do We Begin?" shares a story to develop the scenario. Part 2, "How Do We Set Forth?" suggests a definition of collaboration and the use of the metaphor of a "journey." Part 3, "How Do We Journey Together?" proposes four stages of collaboration. Part 4, "How Do We End?" suggests tools for collaboration. Appendices list 19 factors influencing successful collaboration, annotated resources, and documentation forms and worksheets. (EH)
