The time of traditional bands closing in their silos is over! When faced with sudden changes, the need to make quick decisions and solve complex problems, teams cannot act separately from each other. Projects in the organization overlap more and more, which requires an interdisciplinary approach from employees.
That's why we need a new type of band! X teams are oriented to cooperation with other departments and create a network of contacts inside and outside the company, which allows them to approach challenges in an innovative way. Thanks to cooperation, X teams efficiently use business opportunities and carry out tasks that would be impossible to achieve within a traditional team.
