Why? 

Driving Cross Functional Collaboration & improving Distributed Team Performance

Collaboration is a natural part of working in teams, providing different perspectives to spur innovation and increasing momentum of change. Team leaders can be hindered by organizational hierarchies and silos.

Although every team needs some sort of formal structure, its been found that high performing teams that have the greatest success innovating have ways of pushing back on the structure to encourage important cross-functional collaboration.

To drive horizontal collaboration seamlessly, team leaders don’t need to restructure; they need to celebrate new ways of working together. The cornerstone of this new way of working together is to implement a bottom-up decision making process to achieve an effective balance between encouraging engagement and transparency while valuing merit and authority.

Team leaders want to improve their teams’ performance and make better decisions.
But structure, team culture and physical location can get in the way.
