Session 101
Fostering a Culture of Collaboration

The level of success of a partnership depends on the degree and quality of collaboration. Done well, collaboration can enhance reputation, optimize opportunities for the alliance and ultimately create compelling value for all stakeholders.

Building a culture of collaboration takes more than process and tools. It requires a mindset and commitment to shared values, and hinges on mutual trust and transparency. Fostering respect for differences, fairness and the value of inclusion will further fuel better collaboration, increased innovation and effectiveness.

Jazz Pharmaceuticals is driven by its mission-driven patient-centricity, being a great place to work and living core values, one of which is collaboration. Living that value means building alliances around a culture of collaboration. Join Bruce as he shares his experience and provides practical insights about:
