From research in interdisciplinary collaboration we know, that five barriers typically makes the collaboration difficult. Once the barrieres are identified it will be easier to manage and support the collaboration across the organization, and find decide how to minimise, reduce or even eliminate the barriers.
The five most common barriers are:
- the Finding Barrier
- Barrier of Self-sufficiency
- the Homogeneity Barrier
- Knowledge-is-power Barrier
- the Transfer Barrier
INNOVERSITY COPENHAGEN has developed a QuickTest, a test with 15 questions, in order to uncover the barriers, that cause you problems. You get unique insight, and information about the barrieres that are problematic across your organization, and it will only take five minutes to answer the QuickTest.
When the employees have answered the questions, they will receive their individual results. A green barrier indicates, that the barrier apparently is not a problem in the department or company. A yellow barrier indicates, that the barrier cause certain problems, and a red barrier indicates, that the barrier is a major problem to the collaboration across the department or company.
Together with your results, you will receive a description of each of the five barriers, with recommendations and advice in relation to each barrier.
