I'd like our group of companies to collaborate, but will that be too disruptive?

collaboration 

Q - My predecessor ran the group of companies as completely separate entities.  I see value in getting them to collaborate, but will that be too disruptive?

A - First of all there are some initial questions you need to ask yourself. Do the entities have common goals?  Can they all be more successful by collaborating?  If the answers are yes then it is worth going through the inevitable pain barrier of getting them to work together.  Part of it will be down to how they are incentivised, but the main challenge will be to get them to see that the bigger vision will be better for everyone. If the answer is no, it may be best to leave things as they are....change is not always for the best.
