Making Collaboration Culturally Relevant

With Vikas Uppal and Luke Hohmann

In This Webinar:
We've explored a great number of collaboration frameworks in the Collaboration at Scale webinar series. Some, like the Impact-Effort matrix, could be considered "culturally neutral": they work across cultural boundaries and help unite teams. Other frameworks have cultural biases. These aren't inherently good or bad, but instead make frameworks more or less relevant to their intended use. In this Collaboration at Scale webinar, we'll explore design techniques and principles that can help you make collaboration frameworks more culturally relevant, increasing the beneficial impact these frameworks have in your business.
