Collaboration with Purpose

The power of all

What comes to mind when you think about collaboration? Probably a group of people sitting around a table, some taking notes, other expressing their opinion, a selected few listening intently.

Collaboration happens in nearly all disciplines: in an orchestra where all instruments complement each other to make a great symphony to a group of medical researchers or a marketing team launching a new brand.

This issue of ALFA Live is about precisely that: how successful projects shine thanks to collaboration, synergy, openness and the strategies behind them.

All of these stories confirm that collaboration is a conduit for innovation, creativity, reaching objectives, developing new things and bettering those that already exist. They are testimony that in collaboration being humble is key, as well as admitting we don’t know everything, acknowledging the strengths of those that surround us, and having confidence (in ourselves and others) to share our opinions and ideas.

Here you’ll meet Planetario ALFA’s Astronomic Society and learn how they see the stars; the incredible efforts ALFA Foundation’s teachers make for their students to reach success; the wonderful collaboration between institutions and volunteers to make the School for Parents; the cooperation between experts and technicians at Nemak’s Engeneering Academies; how gray areas are a tool for collaboration at Sigma; how José Miguel Ruvalcaba and his team work at Axtel’s Distribution Center; the expansion of Alpek’s Styropek plant in Altamira, Tamaulipas; and what happens behind the scenes to make your favorite movies.
