As I mentioned earlier this week, I have the pleasure of working with Curtis Ogden on the Garfield Foundation’s Collaborative Networks initiative. We’ve been working with a fantastic new network on some very hairy challenges, and we’ve been talking a lot about how to setup a network for success.
I had the chance to capture some of Curtis’s thoughts on video Skype the other day, which you can watch above. I love his advice to “bring it,” and I loved how he articulated the different tensions that participants need to hold. It’s well worth ten minutes of your time to get a taste of Curtis’s wisdom and energy.
Update: February 5, 2014
Curtis blogged and expanded his thoughts on initial conditions for network success.
