One video. Two mins.
I help Americans and Germans to clarify the details of their collaboration:
A Bestandsaufnahme – from German Bestand: inventory, portfolio, stock, supply and Aufnahme: picture, recording, photo shot – is a series of discreet background interviews with your key people at key international locations. The goal is to describe the current state of cross-border collaboration, and to submit recommendations on how to improve it. Method
Cross-border collaboration is about how the work is done. These are the key tasks, in critical areas, where the organization must perform well. In carefully prepared workshops, based on the findings of the Bestandsaufnahme, I guide your management and subject area experts to an integrated approach to collaboration. Method
The approach I take in the Germany-USA space can also be applied to multinational teams within global companies: Bestandsaufname followed by collaboration workshops. In approximately half of my work is in serving multinational organizations.
