Do you know that results measurement is an excellent tool for driving collaboration?
There are 3 ways you can enhance collaboration with results measurement.
- Clear outcomes
In order to measure something, you need to have measureable outcomes which means you need to be clear and specific on what you want to achieve. This forces you to be articulate about the results.
Clear results make it easy for communication and for your team to understand. When people understand the end results, they would be mindful about them, which helps to orient their decision process.
- Open dialogues
Dialogues on approaches, the ‘how’ to achieve the results bring different teams together.
Each team brings its expertise and ideas to the conversation. Apart from sharing knowledge, teams acquire a better understanding of each other’s work. The conversations boost collaboration.
- Joint commitment
The open dialogues generate better solutions because teams become more comfortable in challenging each other on what works best.
Through that process, you get joint commitment and alignment on the chosen solution. Joint commitment is powerful because when hurdles arise, each team steps up. The cohesive effort garners higher performance.
When you have clear outcomes, open dialogues, and joint commitment, you would be able to enhance collaboration and accelerate business success.
