Collaboration: Why working together leads to better results

Australian National University’s (ANU) Hanna Neumann building in conjunction with our collaboration partner Clarke Keller


Collaboration takes a range of shapes and forms at dwp design worldwide partnership, but importantly it is helping form a future where design thinking is tested and debated, reviewed and applied, by different skillsets, in different disciplines and different places, with different people in different timezones, all for the same purpose and with an aligned final aspiration.

Collaboration is perhaps the most effective balancing exercise we can undertake; where we seek to open opportunity by putting a range of thinking in one space, applied to one task with the intent of this thinking resulting in an exemplary outcome that addresses and resolves issues, seeks out new and innovative opportunities regardless of limitation, and enables discussion that exceeds the confines of timesheets and broaches deeply into the world of design thinking.

dwp design worldwide partnership is seeking to break a new frontier in a range of collaborative partnerships, not only for our projects and our clients; but for our business and its offerings.  We have added dwp|technology to our portfolio, expressly to broaden our current design services to embrace collaborative thinking that includes digital transformation, innovative lighting solutions and overall technological advents, into our building design from the first butter paper sketch.

In addition, dwp design worldwide partnership has established a range of partnerships with a number of national and international firms, with whom to collaborate to ensure a rigorous and well-considered outcome for our clients.  Current collaborations have been undertaken with John McAslan & Partners from the UK, Furtado Sullivan, Warren and Mahoney, Endrim, 5Projects and Katsieris Origami – across education, workplace and health projects. Our working with others will continue to scope new sectors, new initiatives and new opportunities.

Collaboration relies upon openness, transparency, and knowledge sharing and fosters greater accountability, resulting in an expanded and well-tested result.
