They are good at achieving irreparable growth.
Organizations that want the different business units and/or teams to work more aligned to really achieve the purpose and organizational objectives as one team.
What we often hear ...
We want to take the next step in our organization and our (management) teams play an important role in this.
However, they are very separated teams. They work apart from one another, mainly think of their own targets and their own processes. That requires more than just team development. The central question is: how do we strengthen cooperation between teams?
Often there are also underlying questions.
For example, how do we ensure that each team works towards the same end goal? And how do they work together instead of against each other?
How can different teams and departments better get a better understanding of each other? And how do we let these teams take responsibility for their work? And how can we ensure that the various teams become the lever for the desired development of the organization?
Our Droomfabriek approach
If you want to have an impact on the entire organization or a large part of it. Is it not enough to develop teams separately. The crux is often in the cooperation between teams. Our approach for Multi-team Development is an extension of Team Development. And even elaborates on that to stay steps ahead.
Not only do we guide the teams in creating mutual trust and result orientation as a team, but we also facilitate the development of trust and result orientation between teams.
The starting point is a clear purpose/strategy/ change assignment at the organizational level. This higher goal serves as a direction for all underlying teams. If you focus on the purpose and common goals of the entire organization, teams become aware that the interdependencies between them are often many times greater than they think.
Individual learning and learning as a team is discussed. We make the link with other teams and departments: what dependencies are there with others in the organization? What is our role? How is it linked to our development goals at the team level and at the individual level? What story are we going to approach our stakeholders with? Etc.
Each team and each team member will work on experiments that contribute to the individual learning goal, to the team learning and results, and to the higher purpose of the organization.
The outcome: lively organizations in which teams share the organizational goals. Organizations in which teams can express their own needs, wishes, and concerns to other teams in a connecting way. In which teams work together on an even better exchange for realizing the organizational goals. Organizations in which people are transparent and constructively dare to discuss differences and use different angles to increase the impact of the organization in innovative ways.
