Snippets — If cooperation is how humans get things done, then a sense of community is the fuel to optimise our purpose

John Tropea - Delicious Community

If cooperation is how humans get things done, then a sense of community is the fuel to optimise our purpose. In fostering a sense of community in your organization, this is without question the most critical first step you have to take – where you facilitate opportunities for employees from different teams, divisions or departments to interact and engage with one another to better understand the challenges and approaches they want to take to achieve the same goal.

Establish and maintain clarity of purpose: success in keeping the decision-making simple depends in part on clarity about project goals. Get the purpose clear, link it to business needs, get your mandate tied to that purpose, keep the focus tight, and refuse distractions along the way. Shorten and leverage learning curves: this is a tough challenge to meet, because tendering and procurement guidelines often force organisations to engage people who are strangers to them.

As knowledge of the world grew with the expansion of exploration, trade, imperial and economic dominion throughout the seventeenth century, so the collections of the curious grew, and the challenges of sensible arrangement became even more pressing.
