By: 800-CEO-READ @ 2:21 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

A recent post by author Bob Sutton suggests that Jack and Todd may have a title to include in an updated edition of their 100 Best Book: Morten Hansen's Collaboration.
Whether or not Jack and Todd agree, Sutton points out some great facets to the book - cost and benefits of collaboration, cultivating T-shaped management, and unifying people. Hansen's book avoids ideology and theory and provides concrete evidence and data that support his ideas. Considering the topic of the book, it's something everyone can benefit from, as we experience collaboration constantly in our working lives. But, to what degree do we use it to the best results? This book can change that.
