As startups grow, you must form distinct teams. However, initially you may generate more problems than you solve.


Cross-team collaboration is necessary for scale and leads to powerful innovation, improved workflow, and valuable feedback to prevent falls and fix precipitous issues.


To reach new heights, check your conditions and gear:


๐—ฆ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ธ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ: Start with the same vision, values, and strategy so everyone knows how the business grows holistically.


๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ: Draft a document together that defines purpose, roles, expectations, budget, and constraints. Everyone then signs.


๐—ฆ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—–๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜†: Understand how your clients will succeed. Focus on identifying and thrilling clients which add value.


๐——๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€: Ensure everyone knows how they AND others can succeed. Hire people with the skills to communicate and cooperate.


๐—”๐—น๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ป ๐— ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜€: Build platforms across teams offering full visibility. Base rewards on behaviors and results which improve the company.

Even with these steps, ๐™™๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™ฃ๐™จ๐™ž๐™™๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ก๐™ก๐™–๐™—๐™ค๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ can exist:


Time โ€“ Teamwork requires more planning and discussion, so build in extra time for realistic milestones


Effort โ€“ More people likely means more disputes, so commit to addressing issues immediately with all parties


Communication โ€“ Less contact as teams specialize, so set expectations early and give updates regularly


Costs โ€“ New systems to share and monitor projects, so clarify the needs and then invest in the right tools



Align objectives, share insights, and facilitate projects across teams to scale efficiently and to summit unimaginable peaks.
