In many projects, these questions don't get asked enough. When there are challenges, people hesitate to bring them up. People hate to poison the water. They want to keep the other team enthusiastic. So challenges only emerge when they have become real issues.
In collaborations there is lots of talk about WHAT everyone is doing. At some point you need to talk about HOW the collaboration is doing. Don't wait for team members to come up with issues themselves. The key conditions above work well as discussion starters, because they are objective and translate into actions. They often suggest aspects partners hadn't thought of.
To make it even easier, Scoutely has developed Pulse. This quick tool asks all team members how they rate the collaboration. They only have to rank seven key conditions. Both partners receive reports that show how the two teams rank these conditions. Look at these reports together. You will be sure to come up with many actions to improve your ways of working together.
