Why Organisations Need Cross-Team Working

Bringing teams together to achieve complex and business-critical outcomes is an essential part of a manager’s job.

This challenge can be a difficult and energy-sapping process but will be made easier by using the following pointers:

  • Make sure that there is a shared purpose and capacity to achieve complex and difficult objectives – that could not be done by one team on their own
  • Give plenty of opportunity to discuss the shared goals – and how to achieve objectives together
  • Work to consistently improve relationships between different teams – from enhanced understanding of each team’s issues and expectations
  • Select and work with diverse and flexible team members – who can perform a variety of tasks, work on more than one team and enhance their career development potential
  • Make sure that there is always good internal communication – from establishing joint procedures and keeping each other informed at every stage
  • Work hard to establish and deliver consistent standards of quality and output – from collaboration about standards and how to achieve excellence
  • Work consistently to develop a broader team spirit – bringing different teams together and reducing friction between them

 

Good Luck!
