We have no budget
Managers don’t support the project
It’s taking too long
It’s too complicated
I don’t have time time
We don’t have resources

Collaboration leaders and practitioners at companies all around the world have at some point thought these things. But these things didn’t stop companies like TELUS, Unisys, Wells Fargo, Safeway, and the many other organizations around the world who have been successful with their initiatives. So sure, you can stop, admit defeat, say you tried, and move onto the next thing. But while you’re doing that, think of the companies that are working harder, are more determined, and are more committed.
Over the next few years what do you think will happen at your company and what do you think will happen at theirs?
