So... why should you make use of our services?
Well… because high-quality collaboration in your company also means better team performance (e.g meta analysis Hulsheger et al., 2009),
more innovative outcomes (e.g meta analysis Anderson et al., 2014),
better organisational performance (e.g meta analysis Bowen et al., 2010),
more job satisfaction & engagement (e.g meta analysis Frazier et al., 2017),
and less turnover (e.g. meta analysis Rubenstein et al., 2017).
The Forge is an ideal R&D cell behind the scenes that helps you achieve high quality collaboration!

"The Forge was commissioned by the United Nations to collaboratively develop a game aimed at raising awareness, supporting developing countries on their journey.
The team was extremely professional, creative and delivered a product of extremely high standards. The collaboration went smooth through joint design and thinking and resulted in a perfect tool which we aimed for.
I would highly recommend The Forge for their professionalism, creativity, ability to listen to the client and strict delivery standards. Already looking forward to new collaborations!"

The Forge is a spin-off of Ghent University
We found out that there is so much evidence-based knowledge on the science of working together, on what works and what doesn’t work in companies and how to stimulate it. We know so much about it, but this knowledge is stuck in the basements of universities.
We liberated some for you!
