Today’s organizations are finding that a functional structure does not facilitate the alignment of strategy and execution. The talent and capabilities needed to accomplish this (e.g., strategic alignment) are inherently cross-functional. Consequently, the most common organizational solution is the agile cross-functional team, which we are calling the “pop-up” team.
Whether you’re leading a project team or an entire business, this course aids you in mastering essential leadership skills necessary to take your cross-functional (pop-up) team to new heights. You will learn to work with your team to create a shared team purpose and vision, enhance levels of trust and communication, conduct focused and productive meetings, and improve team decision-making.
