Point of view

Collaboration is good for your health

Collaboration is good for your health


In a project, we have to confront different points of view.

First of all, you have to understand what the client wants, often also to absorb his knowledge in his field. We have been saying this for years because it is essential: we work WITH and not FOR a client.

Then, within a team, we pass the deliverables, we question them, we defend them, we iterate on them.

We learn to speak a common language, to educate, to let go but also to defend our point of view.

Discuss, document what is needed, pair some points. It’s all about balance.

We're kind of tightrope walkers ;)
