Collaboration Model: Key Components to Successful Partnerships

Dr. Rigoberto Rincones-Gomez, Dr. Liliana Rodriguez-Campos.


This paper provides you with key concepts and effective tools to help master the mechanics of collaboration. Also, it offers useful guidelines for transforming any work into a mutually beneficial relationship. The authors are going to blend theoretical grounding with the application of a collaboration model to real-life situations, with a special emphasis on those components that facilitate and inhibit people’s participation. Also, you will learn how your role can become mediator of conflict in order to create greater cooperation. By using the Collaboration Model (CM) presented in this paper, you are going to be able to establish a more open and shared culture. Furthermore, you are going to learn about the intended and unintended effects of the working relationships, and the long-term effects associated with collaborations. The goals of this paper are: (a) to review and summarize the factors that influence the success of collaborations, (b) to make available practical tools that bridge the gap between theory and practice on collaborations, so that people can initiate or enhance a collaborative effort right away, (c) to learn how to capitalize on others strengths to encourage feedback and clear up misunderstandings, and (d) to learn processes for selecting appropriate collaboration methods in order to minimize its resistance.
