Most of his work is in the public sector and deals with collaboration beyond the borders of organisations. Important clients are in the sectors of care, justice and education. In 2012 he finished a longitudinal study that he performed with a consortium of research partners on the treatment of habitual offenders through collaboration between the care and justice sector. He believes that many of todays complex societal issues can not be solved without the energy and entrepreneurship of professionals who are willing to ‘go the extra mile’ and to take the risk of border crossing behaviour. Organisations should empower their employees to act in a way that is truly helpful for their clients. Organisational structures should be designed to support effective collaboration.
