Course Description

In today’s economy, employees are asked to do more with less. How, then, can employees be productive and efficient in the light of overwork and under-staffing?  Cross-team collaboration, also known as cross-functional teams, allows employees to share talent, skills, and expertise in a way that maximizes effectiveness while reducing time constraints and manpower shortages. In this seminar, you will learn how cross-functional teams apply to the workforce, how they can be put in place, and how they can be used to maximize organizational productivity – while ensuring a happy and growing employee base.
