Cross-functional teams are drawn from different areas of an organisation, often with varying backgrounds and a wide variety of skills. It is the project manager’s role to bring cross-functional team members together, form and influence them into an effective group communicating and working fluidly to achieve common goals.
This course consists of three modules, each one including a central case study to aid you in applying the knowledge gained to your own workplace.
In the first, you will learn how to coordinate cross-functional activities effectively. The second module will enable you to adapt your communication to the specific characteristics of the cross-functional manager and to other people from varied professional backgrounds. And finally, the third module will demonstrate how you can exercise your influence on stakeholders without a formal managerial link to deploy your leadership and secure cooperation.
