Transversality is the ability to work across functional boundaries, in multi-disciplinary teams and to achieve success on intercultural projects. Studies indicate that the ability of people to communicate across departmental boundaries is closely correlated with business effectiveness. Integrated project teams have been proven to be the leading ‘value improving practice’. The ultimate success factor is a company’s ability to operate effectively by creating unbeatable products and services. The boundaries are barriers. This workshop is preceded by an appraisal of the degree of knowledge and understanding that exists between departments and within a company’s operating structures, including the supply chain. It then proceeds with the exchange of information and the search for areas of future transparency, synergies and synchronisation.
