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


Cross-team collaboration leads to powerful innovation, improved workflow, and fast feedback to prevent and fix precipitous issues.


To reach new heights, check your conditions and gear:

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
