Today I am in conversation with Dave Brock, who is the CEO of Partners in Excellence; a consultancy with 15 people around the world.
In our conversation we explore many elements of collaboration. Like how to keep people in different time zones and places in the world in sync and in-collaboration and we talk about how to partner with your customers.
Dave’s advice to people or companies entering into collaboration is really interesting: Enter collaboration only as a last resort.
Tune in and listen to this episode to learn why Dave provides this advice!
