I think part of the challenge is the lack of real outcomes-based performance measures. While we often talk a good game around a “focus on results”, leaders are often rewarded more for effort and conformance to existing procedures. If leaders were truly rewarded for outcomes and encouraged to take risks, then we would begin to see a lot more experimentation with collaborative intiatives.
