The Lodestar Foundation: The Collaboration Prize While Lodestar is mainly a grantmaking foundation, our primary operating program is The Collaboration Prize. During the first several years of our work supporting nonprofit collaborations, we became increasingly aware of the lack of written material providing a diversity of models of successful collaborations from which nonprofits could study, learn and emulate. Indeed, we found that there were many perceived obstacles to collaboration that discouraged nonprofits from even considering collaboration as an option. We decided that if a wide variety of successful models was available, nonprofits would be encouraged to pursue collaboration with more confidence. In 2008, we initiated the first Collaboration Prize contest. In 2010, we undertook the second Collaboration Prize contest, primarily to update and expand the database.

General theory of collaboration for detailed steps and processes used in progressive business, academic and creative groups see collaborative method. General theory of collaboration[edit] Currently there exists no consolidated, general theory of collaboration (GTC). Such a theory could provide a common language and framework for those seeking to better understand and expand the collaborative aspects of any given field of human endeavour. Additionally, a GTC would provide a body of knowledge on which those developing collaborative software and other design-based enterprises might draw. Collaboration is fostered when there is an expected beneficial outcome by the collaborators. The more significant the causal outcome, the higher the participation and commitment level will be amongst collaborators. Successful Collaboration has been described as Synergy, where the sum is greater than all the parts; i.e. 2+2=5.

Towards a New Kind of Collaboration A Networked Approach to Social Change | Venture Philanthropy Partners April 2010 It seems that almost everywhere you go these days, nonprofit and foundation leaders alike are talking about ways to foster and increase collaboration. In these difficult times, when resources seem to be vanishing while the demand for services continues to increase, it makes sense that organizations consider working together to make available resources go further and perhaps achieve greater results. In principle, everyone wants to collaborate, but the reality of making it happen is extremely tough. The reality of the current funding system for nonprofits is that these organizations find themselves competing against the very organizations with whom they might collaborate. Yet research in the last few years shows that collaborating, and more specifically, partnering with more than one organization to create a network for change, can allow nonprofits to have much greater impact than they could ever have on their own. - Carol Thompson Cole

Wikinomics Getting past the collaboration buzz word It seems as though we’re labeling every type of cooperative activity as “collaboration” these days. Every company wants to be seen as collaborative and every enterprise solution wants to sell the benefits of collaboration. It’s gotten to the point where everything from Wikipedia, to polling your customers, to a simple conversation between co-workers is being dubbed as “collaboration.” A recent report from the Economist Intelligence Unit suggests that adopting a broad definition for collaboration can be detrimental and can in fact detract from “true” collaborative efforts. The main focus of the report is the role of trust in enabling collaboration, but the opening section of the paper lays out a valuable framework for understanding the difference between collaboration, cooperation, and coordination. From the report: For the complete findings, read “The role of trust in business collaboration.”

Challenge Overview Users interact with online content in a variety of ways depending on their goal. In the scientific and scholarly research community, it’s no different. New tools and technologies allow researchers to search scholarly content from their phones, laptops and tablets in any way they like. And more so than ever APIs (application programming interfaces) and simple online development tools allow users to take data and information and serve it up in exactly the way that works for them. The dynamics of search and discovery are changing, and there is little evidence of it slowing down in the near future.
