为什么重要Why it matters

如何确保敏捷团队可以协同工作文章介绍了如何在完成工作中进行重要的跨组协作:The How to Make Sure Agile Teams Can Work Together article explains how important cross-group collaboration is in getting work done:

  • 通过在通常不镜像正式报告结构或标准工作流程的关系网络中进行协作,可实现工作。“Work occurs through collaboration in networks of relationships that often do not mirror formal reporting structures or standard work processes."
  • "直观地来说,我们知道工作的协作强度已 skyrocketed,并且协作是灵活性的中心。"Intuitively, we know that the collaborative intensity of work has skyrocketed, and that collaborations are central to agility."
  • "然而大多数组织不会高效地管理内部协作,并假定技术或正式的组织结构图可以产生灵活性。"Yet most organizations don’t manage internal collaboration productively, and assume that technology or formal org charts can yield agility.”

根据 水平协作和跨思洛接层 的文章,开发和部署文化经纪人非常重要:According to the Horizontal collaboration and cross-silo leadership article, it's important to develop and deploy cultural brokers:

  • "区域性代理通过以下两种方式之一来提升交叉边界工作:充当网桥或作为粘性。""Cultural brokers promote cross-boundary work in one of two ways: by acting as a bridge or as an adhesive."
  • "水平协作的值被广泛识别。"“The value of horizontal collaboration is widely recognized."
  • 可以在其思洛外找到同事的员工查找具有补充专业知识的同事了解详细信息、销售更多内容,并更快地获得技能。"Employees who can reach outside their silos to find colleagues with complementary expertise learn more, sell more, and gain skills faster.”
