Description of Practice
Working together isn’t always easy. One of the key organizational lessons is that individuals are far more likely to effectively work together if they have meaningful participation in figuring out where they are going. The most effective organizations learn how to harness and focus all the smarts and goodwill within its stakeholders to move everyone forward.
