In the 21st century work has changed dramatically. In order to find better solutions to the challenges of today’s complex world, it is necessary that we collaborate with others – across boundaries of disciplines, teams or even organizations. In addition, people spend more and more time in meetings.

say that meetings miss
opportunities to bring
the team closer together.
On the other hand, studies show that people who collaborate with others feel better about their work. This feeling helps them to be more productive and more persistent.

These approaches have two things in common: they shape the experience of creative collaboration between diverse stakeholders and they work best, if someone facilitates them.
