Cross-functional teams and departments have the potential to maintain and boost company growth, provided they stay aligned with corporate goals and policies. Of course, that does rely on your management and administration team deploying clear, achievable goals and monitoring systems, such as OKRs - referred to as Objectives and Key Results. In fact, many will argue that in order to grow, you absolutely need cross-functional alignment within your organization. The problem, however, is that most cross-functional teams are deeply troubled. As many as 75% of cross-functional teams, are actually dysfunctional. Why? The answer is simple, but solving the problem is not quite as straightforward.
The 17th Annual ABPM World Class Briefing Awards Ceremony was held at the Corinthian Ballroom on the final evening of the 2018 Spring Conference. We always look forward to the annual ceremony because it provides the opportunity to honor World Class achievement in Program excellence and Center design. That's an accomplishment truly worthy of celebration. We believe the term “World Class” is often used too casually. But ABPM has set high bars when defining criteria for both programs and centers. Here are the honorees recognized for World Class achievement, along with selected comments from the jurors.
