You can make collaborations more successful by building in explicit relationship-building and problem solving processes. In this discussion, we'll explore how to link tools and practices to get better results more often.

As an example, we'll assess one virtual collaboration that blends a social network and structured synchronous1 and asynchronous2 problem solving to tackle a community's problem. And we'll work together to see how that design (and others) can be improved. Think about your own virtual experiences with online collaboration and be prepared to join in. Please join us for this great program, led by David Friedman of Bridgewell Partners. Following the presentation, there'll be time for Q&A/discussion.

David Friedmanis a Principal at Bridgewell Partners. He works with professionals in a variety of fields to improve their ability to start, maintain and capitalize on critical relationships. For the past year, he's been applying his relationship-building insights to the design and implementation of unique models for collaborative problem-solving that emphasize how the online environment can be shaped so that people work together much more productively.

Before starting Bridgewell Partners in 1999, David was a partner at the global consulting firm McKinsey and Company, where he worked with clients in financial services, health care and transportation on strategic and organizational challenges.
