Collaborative Value Research and Insights.

Over the past decade, there are advances made in understanding how humans solve complex problems and how they do so collaboratively with other people in teams. Researchers converge in asserting that collaboration has the potential to address many of society’s most complex challenges.

Scholars propose that teams looking to make collaborative value should answer the following questions: (1) how do the teams organize their activities and how do they become prepared to pursue opportunities? And (2) what kinds of interactions and actions embedded in team activities contribute to collectiveness and collaborative value?  

The research “The Effect of Team Leadership on Collaborative Value among Ashoka Fellow Organizations in Africa” is designed to answer these questions. The study is targeting 427 Ashoka Fellows organization in 22 countries in Africa.
