Organizational Monsters waste money by undermining collaborative productivity

When done correctly, collaboration brings benefits that individual collaborators are less likely to achieve on their own. When done well poorly, lots of time and money are spent with little to show for it. In fact, you’ve probably experienced the frustration that comes with ineffective collaboration: unproductive meetings, squandered budgets, poor results, loss of control over the process, personality conflicts, group think, and a lack of synergy.

These challenges do not arise because of difficult personalities or a ‘lack of teamwork’ but rather breakdowns in collaborative groups, communications, culture, focus, management, and process that deter individuals from producing better results when they work together. At Planosaurus, we affectionately call these common threats to collaborative productivity Organizational Monsters and we work diligently to help you eliminate them from your programs, projects, governance and operations.

Confused by The Matrix? You are not alone.

Many years ago when The Matrix came out everyone was talking about it because of its ingenious visuals. I found it neat to watch but was really confused by the plot.
