In today’s competitive, global marketplace, the ability to collaborate with colleagues, business partners, other companies, and even other governments is more critical than ever. Former LAPD and NYC police commissioner Bratton and Harvard professor Tumin have joined forces to create this playbook on how to reach across boundaries to share information and get results. Using stories from their own experiences, the authors illustrate how radical collaboration can create new opportunities and enable companies, government agencies, and the military to compete. Among the diverse success stories highlighted are IBM, VISA, President Obama’s campaign, and the Massachusetts Division of Social Services. Additionally, Bratton draws heavily on his law enforcement experience to show examples of “in the trenches” collaboration, including the NYPD’s use of Compstat, a digital collaboration mapping New York’s neighborhoods. These real-life stories bring the concept of collaboration to life and underscore the importance of breaking down barriers in order to survive in an increasingly competitive world. (Jan.)
