PHASE 7: CROSS-FUNCTIONAL INTERLOCK

Maintains alignment of your functional strategies to assure all groups are working together toward the same objective.

 

 

Market leading organizations not only have functional strategies, but they actively align them with each other. They maintain a regular communication cadence and actively adjust their strategies to reflect the current and future needs of the market. This leads to increased transparency between groups and increased revenue.
