"Teamwork Gave U.S. Clear Harbor View"

Op-Ed, Bloomberg

By William Bratton and Zachary Tumin, Former Special Project Assistant to the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program (STPP) Director, September 1, 2010–December 31, 2013

The vision was for the world's navies, ports and shippers to collaborate to protect shipping, harbors and cities from attack. But developing such a "concept of operations" was considered a challenge so large, it would take 18 months. That's right — 18 months just to create a plan. Meanwhile, U.S. ports and those of its allies would remain vulnerable. And U.S. warships and commercial vessels entering foreign harbors would remain blind to hidden perils, even though information about a dangerous ship, cargo or crew might well exist in another agency's or company’s database.

"Viral By Design: Teams in the Networked World"

Op-Ed, Harvard Business Review

By Zachary Tumin, Former Special Project Assistant to the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program (STPP) Director, September 1, 2010–December 31, 2013 and William Bratton

"The recent Kony2012 viral video offers proof that something special is happening as a result of all this connectedness: digital collaboration has come of age. Garnering 100 million YouTube views in six days — the fastest ever to reach that mark — Kony2012 demonstrated that digital collaboration can create astounding effects not possible just five years ago. Achieving those effects is no accident. While much is made of "emergent collaboration," Kony2012 went viral by design. The Invisible Children, Inc. team that masterminded the campaign comprised veteran media activists and fundraisers pursuing a common enough goal (a criminal's arrest), but using skills and means unique to the digital age...."

Book

By William Bratton and Zachary Tumin, Former Special Project Assistant to the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program (STPP) Director, September 1, 2010–December 31, 2013

In Collaborate or Perish!, former NYC Police Commissioner and LAPD Chief William Bratton joins forces with senior Harvard researcher Zachary Tumin to lay out a field-tested, streetwise playbook for collaborating across the boundaries of our networked world. Where everyone is connected, Bratton and Tumin argue, collaboration is the game-changer. Technology helps — but people make it happen.
