“Want Better Collaboration – don’t be so defensive”, by James (Jim) Tamm

Great article on collaborative/non-collaborative work environments!

It started with a discussion of research done on chickens and looked at the differences between collaborative and non-collaborative groups of chickens.  In non-collaborative groups of chickens the star performers become the stars by suppressing the egg production of other chickens – they look better because they cause others to be less effective.  He related that to many organisational environments and the behaviour of star performers in companies.
