Dr Neil Preston, an Organisational Psychologist, has worked on some of the largest project alliances in Western Australia, and over the past 15 years he has developed a sharp eye on what conditions are conducive for collaborative performance within an organisation and what disables this performance. Setting the right conditions for high performance is critical to the success of complex project delivery. Without these conditions it is difficult for leaders to manage success.
