High Collaboration Frameworks

Value-added work is, well, highly valuable so it is better to do it in a way that brings deep understanding, rich detail, and high quality. Collaboration Frameworks do that for you and more because they motivate people to get involved and have fun while getting things done, sometimes in less time than the usual way of doing the same work. The quality of the results is typically higher with high collaboration frameworks compared to the traditional way of doing them.

High Collaboration Frameworks (HCFs) are tools designed to conduct professional value-added activities in ways that minimize or eliminate collaboration dysfunctions to obtain high quality results from such activities. The purpose is to solve a problem, train, educate, persuade or conduct other activities whose purpose is not entertainment. HCFs have some fun factor that engages participants, although some may sometimes deliberately sacrifice some of the fun-factor to achieve a desired progress. 

Reduced to its formal essence, a HCF is an activity among two or more independent decision-makers seeking to achieve their objectives in some limiting context.

Examples of the kinds of value-added activities you can do with collaboration frameworks:

  • Determine the state of the organization

  • Strategic and tactical planning

  • Identify new business opportunities

  • Road-mapping

  • User modeling

  • Project portfolio prioritization

  • Rapid requirements generation

  • Determine de level of collaboration along the value chain

  • Retrospectives

  • etc.
