Team and collaboration

The challenge

The last few years have seen the greatest change in the way teams work and interact since email was introduced. Our ability to connect with colleagues, partners and customers in any country or function or organization is unprecedented. This has created uncertainty, confusion and frustration. A hybrid team may have the potential for great efficiencies, but it also highlights and increases the cultural and interpersonal challenges of collaborative working. Employees can become disengaged; managers feel out of control. Focusing on digital transformation sometimes leaves the human behind.
