xf-team-1Successful organizations continually improve their ability to achieve desired outcomes. Most organizations, however, are severely constrained by legacy structures that create internal friction and confusion rather than an external focus on business targets. When we tackle structural issues, we aim at restructuring organizations into collaborative bodies focused on delivering business results faster and better than anyone else. Our touchstone is a relentless focus on aligning work processes with business strategies, and where needed, employing cross functional-teams as the normal way to operate. The collaborative challenge is to rewrite organizational DNA by changing structures to fit the work, and the basic nature of how teams are created, launched and supported.
