What can you learn from other teams?
When was the last time you as a team slowed down enough to meet with another team at your organization and perhaps share notes or best practices of recent projects or initiatives. AS a former program manager myself I know how important these often informal, and infrequent (think quarterly or one or twice a year) cross-team meet ups served. These can help to:
- Build relationships
- Learn about what others are doing (inside and outside your organization)
- Avoid pitfalls
- Not reinvent the wheel
- Identify others who might bring expertise or resource suggestions you need around current opportunities and challenges\
What practices or habits can you adopt as a team to become more regular in your outreach and sharing of practices with others?
In some organizations this is know as cross-silo collaboration. Siloed or not, what can you do to build your relationships across teams, departments and organizations this season?
For those who are stepping into a long weekend - enjoy,
