The sharing imperative

Here is a link to an excellent short article by Bala Chakravarthy (Professor of Strategy and International Management, IMD, Lausanne, Switzerland), about the importance of sharing knowledge, expertise, resources, etc., across organisational boundaries:

Sharing effectively across organisational boundaries is becoming increasingly difficult because of the retrenching and centralising initiatives many national and international businesses are implementing in response to the recent (and ongoing) economic crisis.

The four practical actions described by Professor Chakravarthy will help your organisation achieve an effective balance between structural efficiency and overall organisational development, growth and effectiveness.

The article takes about ten minutes to read (well worth the investment of time) and is an abridged version of a larger article, the references to which are given at the bottom of the last page.
