To execute major initiatives in any organsiation, like managing complex projects, integrating acquiring firms, implementing products and solution we deploy cross functional teams (CFT). Inherently it is expected that CFT’s will work in collaboration and deliver desired results.
Recently one group approached me to write something on “Collaboration”, as usual I countered them about “are we really collaborating today?”, “Why Collaboration doesn’t work?” and so on.
After googling on those thoughts, I found following quotes which are relevant for this article.
“Gettin’ good players is easy. Gettin’ ‘em to play together is the hard part.”
