Interesting article I came across on collaboration and motivation - David Relph's Bristol Scale:
C1 — The ‘what’s in it for me motivation?’
I collaborate because I/my organisation benefits. My motivation is personal.
C2 — The ‘I need others to do something that will help me’ motivation.
I collaborate because I wouldn’t be able to achieve something my org values without others. My motivation is organisational.
C3 — The ‘I need others to help me achieve a wider goal that I can’t deliver myself’ motivation.
I collaborate because I want to achieve a broader societal/system goal and need others to help. My motivation is system based.
C4 — The ‘collaboration is an essential capability we need to develop’ motivation.
I collaborate because I believe that it’s an essential approach (in abstract) not something whose utility is limited to solving a particular problem. My motivation is building place capability.
C5 — The ‘I collaborate therefore I am’ motivation.
I collaborate because I am fundamentally committed to working that way. My motivation is civic and social — my organisation is a means to that end
