What if your project's success was heavily dependent on another department with a radically different culture and business drivers than your project team? Every project leader has had an issue at some point in their career with getting everyone on the same page and ensuring people are working together toward the same goals. It is not an easy task. We need both technical and soft skills to bridge departmental divides and align teams toward achieving strategic goals. Using a case study from a large healthcare system, this session covers tips and tricks from organizational and collaboration models used to establish lasting alignment across teams.
As most projects span departments and organizations, project management professionals are increasingly challenged to align teams with differing business objectives and often contradictory working cultures. Periods of distrust and goals mis-alignment will precede initial coordination and then ultimately deeper collaboration between the organizational units. As part of project planning and stakeholder management, investing time to think about organizational design will provide dividends later.
Describe organizational design models that support increased collaboration across teams
Demonstrate benefits of organizational design in aligning program teams to achieve strategic goals
Describe how a "One Team" approach can be used to increase collaboration
