In my experience, one of the most thought-provoking and stimulating sessions was when Sachin and Erin organized a "sit-down" between Changemakers and Ashoka U, so that Ashoka staff from both Changemakers and Ashoka U could simply meet and talk with one another.
I think in an organization like Ashoka that has many different types of activities and is very silo-ed in terms of the operations, metrics, business processes, and people it is imperative to put a "face" on our colleagues and to make sure we know one another on a personal level.
Sitting in this way was very interesting as well as engaging because I had known about Ashoka U but not really known exactly what they do and what kinds of challenges, products, processes they already have in place.
Out of this discussion the most interesting idea that I heard about was a "Changemaker Schools 360° Scan" which Ashoka U uses to engage with campuses. To my mind that would be a great baseline product to implement within Changemakers, IF we were doing a "Changemakers Companies" project, because much of the work was already done and could easily be converted to a "Changemaker Companies 360° Scan".
Regardless of potential outcomes, I think having sit-downs and regular cross-team interactions is helpful because it pushes my understanding of what is possible and helps me think how to leverage what assets we already have, rather than continually attempting to recreate.
