Need. Problem. Opportunity

Collaboration as it is

... and should not be

Organising a weekend away with friends. Running a series of workshops. Consulting an expert group to prioritise investments. Consulting a doctor / helping a patient to get well again.  Teaching / learning. Deciding collectively on budget priorities for a city. Playing a role game.  Not just talking, calling, meeting, chatting, writing, videoconferencing… But also sharing, coordinating, deciding, transacting… in the group’s common interest as well as those of each of its members.

The Problem : Collaboration can be great, but is often not – eating up time, money, energy, motivation, and trust - for little return.

Societal Impact

ALC transforms society in all domains

Opportunities for deep change… and risks

ALC carries the potential to deeply change how we collaborate in different domains. How far and deep this will go, is at this stage still difficult to imagine, as for all disruptive high-societal-impact technologies. However, some are already quite clear today. They result from the analysis of situations in current life where collaboration could and should deeply evolve. We have prepared different posts so that you can dig into how ALC transforms domains (and inversely how the focus on these domains challenges specific aspects of ALC) such as :
