Cross Functional Teamwork: “From Silos to T-Shaped functions” (live)
We will explore where the untapped potential lies in organizations to optimize the use of cross-functional teamwork.
In general, everyone in a support role should regularly assess themselves on:
• How strong are we aligned and connected to (or better: embedded in) our company’s primary activities?
• Did we review our own processes and policies (in co-design) thoroughly enough so that they support such transformation?
• Do we improve in an agile way with many small increments?
The delivery of support solutions by multi-disciplinary teams needs to be in-sync with the high pace and iterative development cycles in the primary functions and evolve into a “support platform of T-Shaped functions”.
After the presentation of thoughts behind the related chapters in the book, we will have an interactive workshop triggering your game-changing ideas to make the biggest impact on organizations with the least effort.
