Best Practices to Enhance Collaboration Across Boundaries

Best Practices to Enhance Collaboration Across Boundaries

This On-Demand event was originally presented on July 18, 2018 (60 min)


Today, more and more companies are adopting cross-functional team structures that reward collaborators over “lone wolves.” Members of these teams often have complex reporting relationships rather than a single boss, which makes it essential for goals to be aligned across departments or teams. 

In matrix organizations, where team members represent various departments/functions, the lines of decision-making are often blurred; it’s not always clear who is in charge or who has the ultimate decision-making authority. 

In many cases, team leaders lack the skills to boost cooperation and communication within their teams, and team members often lack the skills to collaborate effectively.

Attendees will learn

  • How cross-functional teaming has evolved over the past 10 years.
  • The benefits and challenges of cross-functional teamwork.
  • The four prerequisites for effective cross-functional teamwork.
  • How Hyundai Capital overcame the challenges of cross-functional teamwork and built a powerful global business.
