Evaluation Title: Breaking Down Functional Silos

Business operations require the work of specialized abilities and roles.  While specialization can allow for a greater volume and quality of work (in addition to being required in some disciplines), it can lead to groups only communicating to immediate peers and not collaborating across the organization.  This is known as a functional silo.  Many believe that businesses must enhance inter-departmental communication to allow employees to collaborate (and create better organizational outcomes).

    • Recommend methods through which the groups can enhance communication.
