Learning Objectives

Organizations are similar to human bodies in that they have a number of vital organs or functions that all need to collaborate to make things work. Having said that it is still very common to encounter silo organizations in which the key functions work towards their own goals and in their own way, with little to no cross-functional collaboration and alignment. Breaking down these silos and aligning the entire organization towards a common goal working as an intricate and collaborative community is one of the most important tasks of business leaders today.
