Title: Effective Collaboration in a Complex and Interdependent Society
Lead Author: Koschmann, Matt
Abstract: We are confronted by a world filled with complex social issues, extensive interdependencies, and vast numbers of diverse stakeholders with competing interests. Globalization and unprecedented access to information have eroded the foundations of common ground that were once possible with isolated, homogenous communities. No longer can we rely on an assumed social consensus to stabilize our policy development. These realities all point to one overarching challenge: the ability of individuals and groups to make meaningful and productive decisions together. Therefore collaboration needs to play a prominent role in all aspects of society. As such, the full force of the social and behavioral sciences is needed to expand our understanding of collaboration and how we can make better decisions collectively. Scholars must think critically about how to increase the capability of people to make collaborative decisions and to represent the diverse interests of multiple stakeholders. By providing means to enhance stakeholder participation, drive ethical conflict resolution, foster meaningful deliberation, stimulate effective idea generation, and make better decisions together, we can begin making substantive progress towards addressing the complex problems that confront our society in the twenty-first century.
