Collaborate or Perish! Bratton and Tumin in the Reading Room

Storied police chief, William Bratton joins government official and Harvard researcher Zachary Tumin for a new collaboration on collaborating. Their new book COLLABORATE OR PERISH! Reaching Across Boundaries in a Networked World will be featured at the Bryant Park Reading Room sponsored by HSBC on Wednesday. Leaders of all kinds will want to take advantage of Bratton and Tumin's visit to Word for Word. Their talk will be hosted by bestselling author Laurie Puhn.

William Bratton (The Daily Beast)
Both men are highly sought after for their expertise in public sector management and security. Bratton has been the head of police for Boston, New York City, and Los Angeles, as well as invited to take the helm of London's police force. Tumin has served in numerous executive government roles from dealing with public safety in New York City schools to serving on an organized crime task force for New York State, and working with Boston's Mayor White in the Office of Management and Budget. In the private sector, Tumin led the Financial Services Technology Consortium, which worked with leading banks to improve online security measures. Bratton has dipped into the business world as well, now serving as the Chairman at Kroll, a corporate investigations and risk consulting company.

When it comes to regulations, security or oversight, you couldn't find more expertise than with these two men. They are leaders in their field, constantly tapped to make a variety of organizations better or more efficient. And now they've stepped out of their traditional milieu to write a cross-disciplinary work in support of agencies, companies and related groups working together. In COLLABORATE OR PERISH!, they make a strong case for the multiplying advantage that teaming up can bring, and argue for breaking down tradtional hierarchies into more usable, accessible networks that can leverage ideas.
