The Challenge of Collaboration Survey of Public Opinion
As part of the CEDR Foundation’s Capability in Collaboration project, investigating the ways in which people collaborate, the problems that collaboration can bring and potential ways of solving those problems, the CEDR Foundation has carried out a survey of 2004 UK workers to find out their perspectives on collaboration.
In 2013, we surveyed 2004 members of the public through an online questionnaire. Of these respondents, 1000 worked in management roles whilst 1004 had non-management roles. We had 994 male respondents and 1010 female respondents (396 Male Managers, 598 Male Non-Managers, 604 Female Managers, 406 Female Non-Managers).
The survey explored:
- whether respondents are able to collaborate in the absence of trust;
- what factors are important for developing trust;
- what the main reasons are for teamwork failing are;
- how effective different methods of communication are for developing collaboration;
- the consequences of poor collaboration;
- whether there were differences in perception of gender in relation to attributes associated with collaborative workers?
